Costa’s Hummingbird 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.
The Costa’s Hummingbird was named after French nobleman Louis Marie Pantaleon Costa, Marquis de Beauregard.
A group of hummingbirds has many collective nouns, including a “bouquet", “glittering”, “hover”, “shimmer”, and "tune” of hummingbirds.
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.
