Thank you. Some non birders asked me what I was taking pictures of and I pointed to this hummingbird and the light was hitting it just right.

Thank you Andrea. Perfect Easter Egg look. It was overcast that day, some people asked me what was flashing the beautiful colors so I took the picture to give them a close up look.

Not sure but I think the overcast day helped make the great coloring in the flashing. Perfect for Easter.
