Rufous Hummingbird Scratching An Itch In Flight
Photo By Rob Monsipapa

  • Title: Rufous Hummingbird Scratching An Itch In Flight
  • State/Province/Region: Arizona
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Woods Canyon Lake
  • Nearest Town: Lake Forest AZ
  • Brief Directions: East of Payson on RT 260 at Woods Canyon Lake
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: Early summer when the temps are cool in the morning and hot during the day, the hummingbirds are migrating north through this area. It isn't unusual to have 5-10 hummingbirds fighting over the nectar in the feeders near by. By the 3 days we had them drinking from red caps with nectar in our hands. Awesome feeling to see these beautiful creatures so up close and personal.
  • Gear: Canon 5D MKIII, 500 f/4 L lens, gitzo tripod and wimberley head
