hangin' out

i THINK this is a young female rufous hummingbird, enjoying the sunshine on the wire above my driveway.  she's really backlit, so it's hard to say exactly.

we have a lot of hummingbirds here in southern california, but unless their nest is threatened or it is really really quiet outside, they're hard to hear above all the other noise in our environment.  and they are very quick, darting around and disappearing into the trees before you can get a good look.
