Humming no more but still beautiful (Dead Animal but not graphic)

  1. I was putting away the Christmas Decor and found this little Hummingbird under one of our trees. Still had that pretty coloring though so I had to take a few images before taking care of it.

    Hope it had a long and healthy life with lots of nectar and hummingbuddies! Those shiny feathers are stunning.
  3. It was really cold for Phx the last week so maybe it died of cold?

    the eyes are the most delicious.....those go missing quite quickly.

    Poor little buddy. Thanks for sharing these images. Everyone's gotta so sooner or later. I hope my corpse is half as good-looking

    Beautiful but sad. In city where I live I never really get a chance to see many interesting creatures. I was astonished when I first see fireflies during my 2nd trip to Sri Lanka, would've never known how beautiful the world is. I wonder when will I see one humming bird.
