Mr. Rufous

958 Hummer Grunge frame.jpgThis image shows how feisty Rufous hummingbirds are for their size.  I was obviously getting too close to his nest and lady even though the nest was at least 20 feet away.  This tree seemed to be the border of his territory.  He repeatedly returned to perch and express his displeasure.  I chose to alter the image to focus on the stance the bird is presenting without the eye-distracting flash of red colour on his neck and head.
