Artist's Description

Subject: Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Location: Lake Telemark, NJ, USA
Equipment: Nikon D3100 and Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens

Ruby-throated hummingbirds are sexually dimorphic. The adult male has a ruby red throat patch, also known as a gorget which may appear black in some lighting, and a dark forked tail. The female (shown here) has a dark rounded tail with white tips and generally no throat patch, though she may sometimes have a light or whitish throat patch. The male is smaller than the female, and has a slightly shorter beak. A molt of feathers occurs once a year, and begins during the autumn migration. This pretty little lady didn’t mind me sitting so close and put on quite an aerial display for me.
