Costa's Hummingbird ~ Family Portrait by 


Cover image for the "Costa’s Hummingbird Family Album ":http://www.redbubble.com/people/dixiesdigitals/... Calendar

All images were taken with two weeks at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum using my Canon Powershot SX10IS.


With its iridescent violet crown and flared violet gorget, the male Costa’s is a stunning sight. While some desert species nest during the nourishing monsoon rains of July, the Costa’s nest in the cooler month’s of February and March, provided lowers and insects are plentiful; it and the related Anna’s may be the only hummingbirds seen in the deserts at this season.

VOICE Call is a rich ringing, sparrowlike tsit

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
