This is one of half dozen or so male broadtail hummingbirds who chase each other around our place in Colorado.   This particular one loves to perch on the tip of a pinion pine tree to survey "his" domain.  He has quite a bit of personality - bad boy, goof ball, and just annoyed.   Taken with an Astro-Physics Traveler, Astro-Physics field flattener and a Canon SL2 SLR camera at about 50'.  Jim
