anna's hummingbird by Cmac13 anna's hummingbird by Cmac13
Full View :please:

i thought i'd posted this images in 2005, when i took it in the Jemez mountains - but try as i might, i just cannot locate it in my :gallery: so, here it comes again :manhug:

:iconmissnysha: ~MissNysha tells me it's a broad tailed humming bird, not an anna's :tears: at all :giggle: but since i liked the name so much decided to leave it as Anna the broad tailed humming bird :manhug: hope you like it :manhug:

Wow! This is a really nice photo! Very detailed! However, this bird isn't an anna's. It's a broad-billed hummingbird! Also, you got the iridescence spot on!

LOL We love the wide open spaces and elbow room...not to mention friendly people..:D Being born, raised and educated here helps, too. :D And, our weather isn't bad either, if we don't like the current weather, we just wait 5 minutes, it'll change....LOL Plus, we have the best protected wheat fields and pastures in the world with 2 airbases and all those ICBM's left over from the cold war...:rofl:

sounds irresistible :giggle: and we know what you mean about storage facilities :nod: New Mexico has it's share of labs, bases and underground bunkers dating back to the Manhattan project :faint: but we do have hummingbirds in summer, which makes it all - so much more enjoyable :clap:

I forgot to mention that we also have some of the cleanest air in the country, and great hunting and fishing....best walleye fishing that one could want. And being listed as one of the safest states to live isn't bad, either. :D Recently, we've had a number of corporations move into the state and my area has really been growing, too... THe Bismarck and Mandan area has better than quadrupled in size over the last 30 years. And, the research centers at our universities statewide have helped, too. It seems a lot of people are deciding to move back to ND when they retire, too. In the recent years, our population decline has reversed itself and we actually had an increase for a change. :D

:clap: yep, if energy were less expensive i'd take a hard look at ND for retirement :clap: but the moderate temps here in New Mexico have stolen my heart - and it's dry, not like Phoenix :no:

having relocated from the New York/Pennsylvania/New Jersey megalopolis, i find Albuquerque's laid back attitudes a delight too :manhug: nice to like where you are :clap: something it seems we share :clap:

We heat with coal here....or I should say lignite...and hot water heat. They spend more on electricity here in a month than what it takes to heat the house all winter....less than $50 for the coal...at $17/ton. The only drawback is cleaning out the ash pit every couple of weeks which is a bit dusty. :D I like the wide open spaces....I'd go nuts in those big cities. I didn't care much for the Twin Cities or for that matter, the Chicago area. Denver wasn't bad when I was there, but didn't care much for the air polution with all that traffic. And, when I visited my sister in Salt Lake, the smog was so bad you couldn't see across the valley. They ended up moving back here, too, where he finished out 32 years with the Nat. Weather Service last week. :D

I have a number of cousins and a nephew around Albuquerque, and a few more over in Arizona.

we do have an issue with smog - but very occasionally - the air quality here is generally quite excellent :nod: and when it isn't :giggle: we drag our trailer up to the mountains and camp out there for weeks at a time :clap:

in three weeks we're off to a *closed*for*the*season* bed and breakfast near Lake City, Colorado :clap: nothing but beautiful air there, along the continental divide and Rio Grande River :clap: three weeks of long walks with the dog should put the spring back in our steps :giggle:

oh, in case you're interested in who we is - my life partner Annet is the other side of that proposition :rofl:

Great shot! I love hummingbirds, but I think this one is a Broad-tailed hummingbird and not an Anna's. Male Anna's have a rose crown too, not just a throat. This pic just has a thoat gorget, and no crown. Thought you might want to know.

Oops, spelling error...it should be "throat".

Anyway I have pics so you can compare species
