I was leaving this area, frustrated because I had not found anything interesting to photograph. I had the car door open and was about to put my equipment in when movement caught the corner of my eye. I thought it was a leaf fluttering in the breeze at first. Lifted my camera to my eye and this was my first sight of this beautiful little hummingbird dining on red yucca blooms.
Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris)
Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora )
