Living in east Tennessee, we have just the Ruby-throated hummingbird, so it is always a treat to go out west where we can see other species. This little guy was photographed at the Cibolo Nature Center, where I could get relatively close. Hummingbirds can only perch, they have such short legs they are unable to walk. Note the yellow pollen on his beak!
