Nature Photography at Boyce Thompson Arboretum, AZ

The second half of our Labor Day adventure was visiting Boyce Thompson Arboretum, just down the hill from Globe near Superior, AZ. Our timing couldn't have been better. The weather was cooler than normal and the wildlife abundant! We happened to see a very rare, once-in-a-lifetime hybrid hummingbird, an interesting cross between a broad-billed and violet-crowned hummingbird. Volunteer Program Coordinator Paul Wolterbeek was kind enough to point this guy out!
