Streaks of Transition
This week, the daily post photo challenge is to share a photo that depicts Transition.
I was fascinated by the little hummingbirds that came by my feeder this summer. I am not a hummingbird expert; however, judging by the dark streaks on his throat, I believe this bird to be a young male in transition to an adult male. The young males and females have white throats. When this young bird comes back next year, he will be boasting a glorious, ruby red throat!
I also captured this bird in transition from flight to landing. This was not an easy thing to do since the tiny birds can streak across the sky at 60 miles per hour! I was glad that the faint lines of his wings in flight were visible in the photo.
