Taken outside Yuma, AZ in January 06. Early morning, 70-300mm, manual focus, hand held. Didn't make note of settings. Believe the bird to be an Anna female.

Gary, glad to see a hummingbird as a finalist photo. I think the blue color in the background was a great accent to the other colors. Nice and sharp! Many other great hummer photos in your gallery as well. Keep up the fun work. #4184578

Thanks for the comment Larry. The blue background was actually a big blue dumpster. Pleased you liked the gallery. #4190826
