One might assume by the title of this blog, I'm referencing the political implications of this country. Yes politicians have been chastised as "animals," but that topic is better addressed by political organizations.
It is no surprise that albino ruby-throated hummingbirds are rare. What is surprising is that one turned up in the backyard of the Gutka family in Chardon Township Ohio. Not only did they actually see the white bird, they also managed to capture it on video. The world of bird watching has been humming about it ever since -- and who could blame them?
One of the best things about wildlife photography is that it can capture moments for us that we would never be able to see with the eye alone. Case in point is this beautiful silhouette of a hummingbird in flight.
