Photo by @TimLaman.  A male Anna’s Hummingbird feeding on aloe flowers.  Shot on a recent winter visit at Sunnylands as part of a new project I’m working on documenting the bird life of this sanctuary in Rancho Mirage, Calif. This is one of the winter resident hummingbirds here.  Learn more about @Sunnylands and how you can visit at their website #hummingbird, #sunnylands #annenberg #birdsofsunnylands #birds #coachellavalley #palmsprings #ranchomirage #desert

#TL_WildlifePhotoTips:  You need a pretty high shutter speed to freeze the wings of a hummingbird.  This shot at 1/1000 sec is not enough, but the slight blur of the wings actually adds a nice effect of motion to the image.
