Ruby-throated Hummingbird Photos

My favorite summer visitor!  Always a wonderful sign of spring when these guys first start showing up in my yard, usually sometime during the first week of May.  If you ever want to attract them to your yard around here, you can't go wrong with honeysuckle.  The orange flowers in many of these photos are from a very large honeysuckle in our front yard.  It's been extremely hardy (flowering late April through October where I have it planted), flowers profusely, and attracts Ruby-throated Hummingbirds like no other plant or feeder I can put out.   

Click on the images or photo names below for higher-resolution photos.  You should find photos below of males with their brilliant ruby throats, females, and juveniles.  Click here for the species description page for the Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
