Allen's Hummingbird

Selasphorus sasin

On 12/29/2004 I had the pleasure of visiting a wonderful hummingbird yard in Thibodaux, Louisiana. Thanks to Tom Sylvest for introducing me to the homeowner, and many thanks to the homeowner for her hospitality and patience with me staying in her yard all day. There were many hummingbirds there, but this would be the first time I had ever photographed any Allen's hummingbird, much less a beautiful adult male Allen's. I also beleive this was a returnee to this same yard from last year.
