This Tuesday I took a relaxing walk on my old neighborhood trail. The birding there is so good, I just couldn't help myself. A short way into the walk I heard a white-eyed vireo. I spent about 10 minutes snapping pictures as it bounced around the branches.
Being satisfied with 47 white-eyed vireo pictures, I walked on. A female northern cardinal landed on a branch over my head. I stepped back and began to snap pictures of her.
I was startled when a hummingbird landed on the same tree, just a few branches above the cardinal. I immediately adjusted the manual focus and started taking pictures of the female hummingbird. The photo below is somewhat blurry. It's difficult to get good pictures when you're quivering with excitement. The dragonfly was an added bonus I only noticed when I uploaded the pictures later that day. I'm not sure what species of hummingbird this is, but it is most likely a Ruby-throated or Black-chinned.
