The hummingbird has this astonishing gorget, his little ruffled bright feather collar that looks absolutely humdrum until he turns his head just a bit into the light. Because hummingbirds don't really sing, males will use their gorgets in breeding displays and also as a threat to territory intruders.
Hope you have the time to view large!
Thanks to you all for your wonderful support, comments and favs while we were at the beach last week. You helped me have a stellar 365 week. I got a bit of teasing about how 365 and photography seems to be a passion equal to when my boys were teenagers and never moved away from their video games. . .they enjoyed seeing the tables turned! Thanks again to each of you for being so great!
