Bright Winter Colors

Best by far on black. I was looking out the window while I had lunch on this heavy overcast drizzley day and saw this pop of color. Rarely have I seen both the red/hot pink and irridescent gold and green look so gorgeous. Of course I had to put down my lunch and go out with my camera. It was too dark to get a good in flight photo since the ISO would have had to be more than 3200, so I figured sitting on a branch was good enough. We have three of these Annas overwintering. They always make me smile.
Thanks for your visits, comments, suggestions, favs. I know I will never catch up with looking at your photos after 2 months without decent internet, so if you have a photo I missed that you'd like me to see, please let me know
What a stunner. So pretty, especially against the muted background. Recently, we watched a documentary on birds and flight... the anna's hummingbird portion was really amazing.

@taffy I was totally amazed to see their iridescence. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one so beautiful and it was a miserable overcast day!
