Albino Hummingbird

Something that is seldom seen and almost NEVER photographed

Albino Hummingbird !

Fifteen-year-old photographer Marlin Shank was fortunate enough

To capture several images of a rare albino ruby-throated

Hummingbird while in a park in Staunton, Va

Very high quality photographs for such a fleeting subject...


 Many thanks to Tulsigirl for sharing these with me!
