Hummingbird Resting

It's not too often that you see these guys resting. This one was perched on a dead tree left by the 2004 fire that hit the area around the town of Julian, CA. The surrounding branches were already mostly black and white in the original photo, so I decided to take it one step further and make the background completely black and white.

Dad says it's probably Anna's Hummingbird (Calypte anna). There are times the Black-chinned Hummingbird (Archilochus alexandri) looks similar, though. Maybe Jon or Libby Rowley have some thoughts.
