Or, he could be a badminton birdie. This somewhat rare bird is a habitual visitor at Cave Creek, especially Sunny Flats Campground, near Portal, arizona, which is near Rodeo, NM. Taken with high speed flash to stop wing blur, and a white cardboard background to compose on the bird, the whole bird, and nothing but the bird. I have taken thousands of hummingbird photos, and never seen a pose like this before or since.
