Here are a few pictures of Anna's hummingbirds taken last week on a walk near the marina at Morro Bay, California. It was challenging with trying to get images of them this year while on vacation. They are so fast and moved on before I could use my camera or were too far away in the distance. I was glad to see them, hoped for more, and satisfied with seeing lots of birds, elephant seals, otters, a few butterflies, some flowers, etc. The weather was great and a nice break from the winter in south central Pennsylvania.

Carol:

Really beautiful shots. Seeing those pictures brings back many California memories for me. Looking out at the frozen winter landscape here in Minnesota it is hard to believe that breeding season has begun for Anna's in California. Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

Very beautiful photos Carol. I love the detail on the last one and the brilliant gorget on the first one. People who live in places like California and Arizona just don't realize what it's like to only have hummingbirds here from May through early October.

I would have loved to capture more images of the Anna's while in California. My friends were not as interested in hummers as me so time was limited because I was traveling with them. Hopefully in two months I'll see the first Ruby-Throated hummers in Pennsylvania. I usually see them when the Azaleas start to bloom in mid to late April.

I love the 1st one the best. Him sitting on top of that twiggy shrub really looks cool!

Can't wait until our Rubies & Black-chinned ones return in April.
