One from this morning, a Costa's hummingbird. It was photographed on the grounds of Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum just outside my city of Tucson. They have a hummingbird aviary as well, but this one was wild on the grounds. Sony A74 with battery grip and FE 200-600.

Glad you are enjoying it. There may be snakes here you will never see, but you certainly have no shortage of interesting snakes in Australia!

Fantastic image! Thanks for posting. In the future, it is helpful if you insert the image instead of adding it as an attachment. It is not immediately obvious how to do it on this site, since the large orange "upload image" button adds it as an attachment. Instead, you can use the symbol on the top bar of the post you are typing in that shows a small rectangle with a mountain and a sun.

Sunday afternoon I was back at my favorite local wildlife spot: Sweetwater Wetlands in Tucson (Arizona, USA). Round-tailed ground squirrels build burrows in the dirt at the parking lot. Then I walked in and found the female bobcat Mama resting next to one of the two main ponds. Last year, 2021, I saw her and a few other bobcats often but this year I have not seen her since January. She is tolerant of people and it was a treat to spend time with her again.

All taken with Sony A74 (with battery grip) and FE 200-600 lens.

Yes it did need bears - thanks for the post. In future posts it is preferable if you embed them instead of adding them as attachments. Instead of using the large orange "upload images" button, use the small icon on the tool bar across the post that shows a mountain and sun.
