That Lousy Hummingbird Photo (other photos added)

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a shot of one of our fine feathered friends (preferably undomesticated).

I'll try to do better later.  But this male Anna's Hummingbird happened to be at St. Michael's on Saturday.  He represents one of about 17 species of hummers that have been seen in southern Arizona at one time or another, about 13 of which are seen every year.  Not all of them make to Tucson, but some of them do--such as this guy.

Hummingbirds of Arizona

Late Additions:

Here are some bird pictures from 1986-1987:

Great Horned Owl

Cactus Wren (state bird of Arizona)

Curve-billed Thrasher, relative of the mockingbird and almost as good a singer.

and last, not a bird, but a bunny:

Resting up from Easter?

These are great wildlife photos . . . I am in awe. How did you manage to get such incredible shots of the Great Horned Owl? The one on the right looks like it's in daylight, too.
