Hummingbirds can be some of the most difficult to ID usually starting with the bill can narrow it down quite a bit.
Do you know which one this is?

There are a lot on LJ also, I watch a photography group every morning and yes it does keep reality in place.
However, I want to tell a lot of them that obviously are shooting birds in a zoo that I'm not shooting in a zoo.
