Cheeky little birds
A rufous hummingbird alights on a branch while feeding on fuchsia flowers outside a home near Elkton in southwestern Oregon on Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014. Some rufous hummingbirds migrate thousands of miles from their summer homes in the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountain states to wintering grounds in Mexico.
Photo made with Nikon D4 body, Nikon AF-S 600mm f/4 lens, and Nikon 1.7x teleconverter. It's an amazing setup. The lens is getting a old and it's very heavy, but it's still pretty sharp.
