Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Joliet, IL, USA by Sandra Rust

I have this male Ruby-throated Hummingbird visiting my yard for a few years now. Both he and his mate visit the feeders multiple times a day. I noticed the rubies on his throat in the sunlight glitter when feeding. I thought I would go out and attempt to catch this magical sparkle. It was an amazingly difficult task. I finally succeeded and here is the final shot. His throat is so perfectly jeweled with rubies.
