This little beauty was not happy to have a visitor to his mountain peak. He buzzed me a few times and then landed and watched. He was quite big for a hummingbird, but I suspect when you have a mountain to protect, you beef up and take the job seriously.
I climbed up a little further than I normally do and quickly realized that with my wonky ankle that keeps wanting to give....this may not be a bright idea. Going up is not a problem, but coming down would be hairy. Plus, honestly....the trail was making me a bit dizzy. I'm normally fine, but I think something about the perspective of the hill with the background....made me loopy.
If you look close you'll see lots of reds, whites, and yellows.
I'll have another post up later today with yet another bobcat from this mornings run.
