Lady Hummingbird in our back yard

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Since I don’t have a lot of flowering plants or shrubs around in the back yard (other than a Bottle-brush Bush), I don’t see a lot of hummingbirds there.  But I just saw a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird sitting on a bare branch in the sun this afternoon.

At first I thought it was one of the dragonflies that come up from the lagoon and occasionally rest awhile there.  But then I saw it more clearly as it paused and actually sat still on the branch.  Of course by the time I went to grab my video camera and came back, she had flown off in search of nectar.  Next time!
