I was getting ready to leave this area, and saw my wife shooting some Hummingbirds near one of the feeders.  She had noticed that they often seemed to briefly hover in one particular area, just to the right of one of the feeders, and had been shooting them in this area for a while.  I decided to take a few more shots, and was fortunate to get one of this very colorful Purple-throated Mountain Gem.
