Early in the morning, the rubythroat hummingbirds visit my scraggily shrimp plants for nectar.
So, early in the morning, I visit my scraggily shrimp plants for hummer shots.
They seem alot "perchier" than hummers I've watched in the past ... even to the point of perching and waiting while another hummer works blossoms on the same plant. When the early hummer leaves, the perching hummer begins slurping nectar.
The perch is actually a dead branch in the shrimp plant, not a distant perch on high.
Patience, patience ...
Preening is important after a rainy night. Soggy feathers don't hum.
"You hummin' to me?"
