Mystery solved? Bird was reported again in the am - and I sat for an hour and only say a single male Ruby Throat. Overcast in the morning.
Returned after lunch - bright and sunny. Single Ruby Throat again - except this time if standing with camera elevated on the tripod. I began to notice the single bird with at first had no hint of orange - would begin to flash orange along the lower portion of the gorget - but in some views it appears that the extent of the orange would increase - is this playing angles of the feathers relative to the sun? Will process and post some photos later.
