Translucent

Anna's Hummingbird

A female Anna’s resting before retiring for the night. I just LOVE the light streaming through the wing feathers.

    1. I’m glad you think so to! It’s been so hot here lately that I’ve been birding at dusk so I’m getting more shots showing off the translucence of the feathers. I never noticed them before, but I guess a feather has tons of little gaps between the barbs so of course light would filter through them.
