On my way back from Alabama today, I decided to drop by a place where a Broad-billed Hummingbird has been seen in Tallahassee. The beautiful hummingbird made an appearance about 5 minutes after I arrived! He only stayed for about 30 seconds and then was gone, but I took a few photos of him at a feeder. Apparently, this is only the seventh occurrence of the species in Florida, and thankfully I was in the area find it. It was late in the day, so these are shot with a relatively high ISO (1250).
It was also fun to see a white squirrel. I need to read more about this, but apparently there is a variant form of Gray Squirrel that is nearly all white. This is not an albino or leucistic squirrel, as you can see by the fact that it has some gray fur and normal-looking eyes. Apparently there are several in the area, especially by the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science, and one must of wandered over here.
