Wow that is really nice...

I think I have only seen a hummingbird stationary once, nice snag...

Beautiful picture and an extraordinary bird.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] August 5 2009 9:29 PM EDT

Speaking of, does anyone know what animal this is?

Point Reyes

no idea Fex...

incidentally, my pic is actually an Anna's Hummingbird...
and I actually saw about 6 buzzing around and landing at various times...

I was thinking a vole, but it looks too long for that.

Fex, I'd bet money that's a gopher or prairie dog, simply because I don't know what else it could be. Any idea on envorinment? Latitude?

what kind of camera did ya get loch?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] August 5 2009 9:37 PM EDT

Dudemus: Click the picture and look on the bottom right to see what camera it is, click "More properties" to find out more aobut it.

Sutekh: Click the picture and then click the "map" link, I added GPS coordinates to almost all my pictures.

I live in the middle of a forest as some people know, and my girlfriend just got a hold of a very very very nice camera.

Where I'm going with this, is I see hummingbirds every single day as we have a hummingbird feeder outside of a window, and I will try to snag some nice pictures now that I have something to take a picture of :D

I'll post here once I get around to it.

Also, nice picture very nicely done, and a beautiful bird at that!

Sutekh is right methinks. It looks like a pocket gopher.

Lochnivar August 5 2009 9:43 PM EDT

Looks like the Botta's Pocket Gopher from the park animal list.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] August 5 2009 9:45 PM EDT

I'm going with Pocket Gopher.

"did not"... so now you do... if you'd stop filling it with hot damn you might attract something besides drunks!
