Black-Chinned Purple Patch

Perhaps one of the most unusual things about Black-Chinned Hummingbirds is the small purple patch at the base of the male's neck. This is only visible when the sun hits it from the perfect angle. Photographed at Caballo Lake State Park, NM, USA. This picture is shown in the 4:5 ratio form. If ordering a 1:1 ratio option, you will lose a bit of the top and bottom margins, without impacting the visual appeal.
