Hummin' in the rain

Moving to Marin has been quite a change, but our new neighbors have really taken to us! With today being my day off, and since I'm still recovering from this past weekend's 50k, I had a lot of time to kill. So, naturally, I spent my morning observing the hummingbirds that have been frequenting our new feeder (thanks Bridgett!) and used the opportunity to fiddle with my neglected camera. From what I learned through my Google search, this is a common species known as Anna's Hummingbird. They are characterized as being mostly green and grey, and the males are covered in reddish-pink feathers that appear dull without direct light. The lighting here doesn't accentuate its iridescence as well as it could have, but I'll post more once I hone my hummy-capturing skills!
