The last of the hummers!

In Nashville, about a week ago the temp was 45 degrees at 6:30 in the morning. Luckily, we had left the humming bird feeder for any stragglers coming through. While looking out of the kitchen window, I was amazed to see a very slow flying humming bird. In fact he was flying so slow, he was struggling to stay airborne. I could tell he was relieved when he landed safely on the feeder rail.
I quickly grabbed the camera and took a few shots of this very cold hummer. This was the last humming bird of the season and was probably on his way to Mexico. Cancun I bet.
I guess you could say this was the last flash of summer until next year!
