    Well! A cross between a hummingbird and a platypus. However did you manage that, Lilly?

    Now that’s a jewel!

  3. He is such a beautiful iridescent color….poor chilly fella.

    • They are so amazing. In the light, you see the iridescent green. The head also turns red in light, and I really think they seem to control the amount of red; but supposedly it is a structural thing only. Then he has these feathers on the side of his head that he can flare out, apparently at will. My husband couldn’t believe this was the same bright red and green bird that was buzzing around him by the feeder 🙂

    He does have that confrontational look – kinda like I feel in the morning! I still can’t believe you get these up close and personal shots!
