Description

This very rare white (leucistic) Anna's Hummingbird made his home at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum this summer. He became quite a local celebrity as birders and nature lovers from all over came to try to catch a glimpse of him. I'd been looking for him for hours and was ready to pack it in when he zoomed around the bush and began to feed on this perfect flower. It's one of my favorite shots of 2016 because of his rarity and because everything came together so nicely.
