Now that the osprey stalking season has ended for the winter, heron stalking season has begun.
During the summer, these beautiful little birds are a common sight in my back yard. They like to take a bath in my water fountain and sometimes I'll have 7 or 8 of the birds bathing at the same time.
This was taken early in the morning. The hummingbird perched on a the metal stand I use for the hummingbird feeder. He landed in a spot in front of a break in the tree with a bright area behind it.

I think this hummingbird was trying out for the Hummingbird Olympics. He was twisting and turning and flying everywhere.
