Juvenile male Anna’s hummingbird stretching. Hummingbirds do a fair bit of stretching and wing flapping when at rest. Presumably this keeps their muscles loose.

When he’s mature, the entire head except for the narrow strips beside the eyes will be iridescent magenta, while his back will remain iridescent green with an iridescent blue-green tail.

Taken on undeveloped land in Gibsons, Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada.

CAMERA: NIKON D90
LENS: NIKKOR AF-S 70-300mm VR @ 300mm

I’m a retired stationary engineer who lives on British Columbia’s scenic Sunshine Coast, which although on the mainland, can only be accessed by water or air – just the way we Coasters like it!

Wildlife and nature photography is my hobby and passion. My primary camera is a Nikon D90 and most of these photos are taken with a Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm VR lens.

I appreciate and try to answer all sincere comments.
