Combining my favourite view of Jaltemba Bay (which happens to be from my front deck in El Tonino) with photographing my favourite bird, has given me this unexpected though welcome photograph, taken on November 28, 2012. Lately, the days have been fairly hazy, which has resulted in sunsets that just fade away without much colour to them, but on this evening it had cleared and… voilà, the photo above is the result.
Each of the photos below feature a Violet-crowned Hummingbird; they just happened to be the birds that flew slowly or perched long enough that I could get the shot!
