    ruby throated hummingbird male perched sitting
    This is such unusual behavior for the Ruby Throated Males that I’ve seen at our feeder. I was at the window. Smack in front of the window, not more than 12 inches from him behind glass, and he was so curious! His coloring is just brilliant. I have several – and I mean several shots of him. He drank, and peeked over at me, and drank, and peeked again. His head contorted and stretched, his eyes wide.

    If you’ve never seen a Hummingbird in real life this close, here you go!

    I would love to, no, I’m in the NEED of sitting there and just watch these wonderful hummingbirds.

    For a couple of weeks or so….

    While someone is serving me cold drinks. And food, never forget food when it comes to this hungry monster ;-)

    You know, it is quite amazing but there is a stone in nature that looks just like this bird. Check out a ruby zoisite. It is green and red and gorgeous!

    Beautiful photo, by the way.

    The light must be really good for your shot. How do you keep refections out of the glass? This looks like you are outside with the bird! Sigh…I keep working at it! :meow:
