For those of you who can't fathom a "large" hummingbird. This is a whimsical (but very accurate) comparison of the Magnificent to a female Selasphorus that was present at the same location. My wife Candy gave me the idea for this demonstration.

Please note: This is a composite photograph. The two birds were not on the feeder at the same time. None of the other photos on these pages has been digitally altered.
