The yard is full of the young hummingbirds, chasing around and generally harassing all other forms of life nearby. Today we get to see the developing bling on the throats of the Black-chinned as well as the Ruby-throated.
Juvenile male Black-chinned, showing the beginnings of his purple throat.
Sun declining, providing good angle for fully lit capture.
Tried to give my fire bush as much light as possible this year. You can see them coming on in the background of this pic.
Just wait til next year, I'll show ya some bling!
The purple cone flower still draws 'em in.
Late day sun lit up this fellow's back.
Parting shot; Ruby-throated juvenile male, peeking around and
showing his developing ruby throat.
