Description RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD ON PINK by Lynn Bauer - A small male rufous hummingbird hovers in front of a bright pink bougainvillea bush. The bougainvillea has turned into a hot pink wall of bokeh color, which really sets off this tiny jewel of nature! Normally, the rufous' gorget shows a bit more orange in color, but I believe that some of the color of the bougainvillea is reflecting off of him, making his gorget appear more red. Hummingbirds truly are the prettiest jewels in the garden and one of nature's loveliest treasures!Taken in a back yard garden in Southern California.
