This very inquisitive hummingbird was having a look at my photography skills while I was trying to capture a lifer. My wife pointed out that I had a bird land only a couple feet away while I was focused on the California Gnatcatcher. One of the easiest hummingbird shots I could have asked for. This young bird is just starting to get the colors into his gorget. For those you who wanted to know what a gorget was just like me, have a look at what Wiki says on the origins and the use for birds. If you can't click through, it is defined as something worn on the throat. This wonderful little patch of land in Dana Point is a very important for some of the endangered birds and is a must see as well for the whale watching as the whales head north in the spring.
