Rare Albino Hummingbird...




Marlin Shank, a very talented 15 yr old photographer, captured some extremely rare images of a albino ruby-throated hummingbird....
These images were taken in a park in Staunton, Virginia. There was on other sighting in Colorado. Marlin's dad who runs Nature's Friend magazine said these little beauties are nearly extinct. Their coloring makes them highly vulnerable to danger in nature... So these pictures are an amazing  treasure...& I would call this sighting very auspicious for Marlin...










I think Marlin has  his life work 
all mapped out for him......
