The gorgeous male Anna’s Hummingbird made several visits to the feeders over the past few days so I was able to get a few decent shots of this colorful little bird.

When the wind shifted to the south, I finally was able to capture some of the wild variations of color in this birds throat and cap.

As usual, the number of females and immature males far outnumbered the colorful adult males I most desired to shoot.

Nonetheless, these guys are beautiful in their own right, even if not as spectacularly colorful as the mature males.

Note the pollen on the top of his head, obviously he has been visiting other feeding sources out in the desert.

With temperatures forecasted to hit 90 this week, I am going to break camp and head west to the Salton Sea and then up onto higher, and cooler, ground in Joshua Tree National Park where the desert flowers are getting ready to put on a show ( I hope ? ).
