Rufous Hummingbird at the Feeder

This morning, we watched a mature male Rufous Hummingbird at our window feeder again. This individual has been around for a couple of weeks. Today, rather than shooting still shots, I tried a short video sequence with the DSLR and extracted a few interesting frames.

The video snippet is posted on YouTube. It was still challenging to get any semblance of consistent focus. I slowed it down to 1/2 speed to emphasize the hypnotic motion of the wings.

I also managed to get a shot of one of the recently arrived Yellow-rumped Warblers feeding in the Wax Myrtle.
