Kind of a fun, different angle of one of these little, fast movers taken a couple of days ago in Gunnison National Forest.
We had a fantastic time camping in the great outdoors and enjoying the much cooler weather at the higher altitude. The scenery was breathtaking as always and while I didn’t capture pics of a lot of wildlife, I did get a ton of images of these birds.
This particular guy was very territorial, aggressively ensuring no others intruded on his area near our camp. In keeping watch and chasing off intruders, he gave me some cool shots including this one when he hovered 10 feet over my head. You get a nice look at those wings and tail as well as his awesome, colorful throat.
