Ablaze with Colour: Lilies and Hummers

May 3, 2014

Thanks to spring the world is bursting out in colour. Some mountain slopes are yellow with Glacier Lilies and the bushes are alive with male Rufous Hummingbirds. The hummers are busy showing off their brilliant orange/salmon throat feathers, chasing each other and waiting for the females to show up.

Enjoy the photos!
