Leucistic Anna's Hummingbird

Leucistic Anna’s Hummingbird, Arboretum UCSC

I recently had the honor to not only see but to photograph a leucistic hummingbird, which is a Anna's Hummingbird at the Arboretum UC Santa Cruz.  Additionally there were normal Anna's Hummingbirds, Allen's Humming birds and a nest with 2 Anna's Hummingbirds.

What a great day for picture taking.

Bird and birds in flight photography using Nikon D5, Nikon Nikkor 800mm lens, exposure 1/1600 sec, f/6.3, ISO range 1600 - 2500, all photos have been processed in Adobe Lightroom.
