My friend Dave Kemp of Richmond, British Columbia, just sent me these wonderful shots of an Anna's Hummingbird he recently photographed in the Richmond Nature Reserve, south-west of Vancouver. Apparently this hummingbird put on quite a show, especially when it attacked an intrusive and much larger Purple Finch (the finch weighs 8 times more than the hummer). Dave says there was a consensus that this feisty little Anna's was "...one mean son of a gun". Dave did a great job of capturing the Anna's spectacular gorget in the top photo and a very revealing shot of the tail feathers and wings in the photo below.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures Dave. You can view more of Dave's great photos by going to pictureperfect.nu.photogallery
