Humming Through Circles of Light
Seeing the numerous hummingbirds at my sister's place has to be one of my favorite treats for when I visit (besides see her and her lovely family of course, heh).
Here's a Broad-tailed Hummingbird, but she also gets quite a few Black-chinned and Rufous, along with a few annual surprise species. Southern Colorado is great!
