Backyard Hummingbirds

_MG_4887For the longest time, a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird would show up at the feeder a few times around dusk. More recently, he has been joined by a female.

He perches on the Yucca stem for minutes at a tme. She is more likely to go to the feeder.

Having hummingbirds in your backyards is one of life's great simple pleasures...
