Hummingbird, again, 040813

We all went to Rockwoods Reservation, and Marilynn Motchan, who was baby-sitting her daughter’s German Shepherd pup, Benny, took us on a short trail and showed me a lot of plants. I also saw some wild mammals, but that’s for another post.

At the feeder was this

very soon, he was joined by a female

Of course, Murphy’s Law mandated that a male Hummingbird never camer near me, though the buzzed around the feeder…

I wanted to get the Hummer on the flowers and a natural perch, and I was successful. Here are some of the photos:

The Sweet Gum tree was a great perch for the birds:
