Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird

 

At the same park I found the Tufted Titmouse in my previous post, there was another area with a boardwalk overlooking a pond.

We stopped and stood for few minutes, watching and listening.Β  Hubby then moved on, and maybe his movement down the boardwalk is what sent this next bird my way.Β  πŸ˜‰

Because it was then I heard the chirp of a hummingbird coming at me from hubby’s direction.

Looking down, there she was, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, darting here, there, everywhere, drinking from the tiny wildflowers.

And then…..as they always do…..she was gone!

  1. She’s beautiful, Donna! I stared at the photos for a moment. Yesterday, I saw two hummingbirds chasing each other at a very high speed in the neighbor’s backyard then zip! They were gone!

  2. The RTH are one of my favorite birds. They never cease to amaze me. Such little beauties. Great shots, Donna. πŸ™‚

  3. Wonderful in-flight images of her, Donna! I’ve only seen one near my neighbor’s house but zipping by so fast and of course me without my camera. I wish it would stop at the trumpet vine just once when I’m out with my camera.

  4. How beautiful! One of these days I hope to be somewhere where I can see one of these little beauties for myself. πŸ™‚
