This winter has seen a pair of Costa's Hummingbirds arrive in the garden, in addition to our resident pair of Anna's Hummingbirds. Here is the tiny male Costa's, with his brilliant purple face and head, the color only just glimpsed in this photo. When he faces into the full sunlight, the color is so vibrant that he has been duly named "Jewel".
Hoping that the courage of kindness will prevail, somehow, in this coming year... and wishing all of you my friends a beautiful, happy 2017!

He's gorgeous, Amy, and you got a great close-up. I rarely manage to catch our resident Annas in photos.

Thanks so much, Kris :) I'm finding the Costa's to be more relaxed than the Anna's about my presence. A little bit of difference in the personalities...?!
