[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Broad-tailed Hummingbird (Selasphorus platycercus)
I caught one of these hovering in strong winds at feeders at the summit of the Sandia Mountains. Ideal situation for photos, these guys did not mind my presence at all and were "standing" in place for some periods. Lucky shot!
