19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Leucistic Broad-Tailed Hummingbird

A rare find this leucistic broad-tailed hummingbird drinks nectar from flowers. Back Story: Seeing a white humming bird for the first time is an experience I will never forget. I was alerted by a friend about a white hummingbird feeding in her yard. Not wanting to pass up an opportunity to see and photograph one, I asked if I could come over to take some pictures. A hour and a half drive later, I arrived and found it was still there.
