Female Ruby-throated hummingbird at dusk

I was sitting on the swing when she came down just to relax and feed
before retiring for the evening.
She sat there for at least 20 minutes untill I had to get up.
Every evening and morning both male and female(mostly female)
will just sit and clean,look around and visit the flowers.
They like the feeders too but seem to favor the hyacinth bean vine
which she is sitting on, also the cardinal climbers and my excessive
amount of tall orange cosmos.


  1. Gorgeous pictures! We often have them, but the little buggers fly around so quickly, rarely giving us a photo op.

  2. What wonderful photos of a hummingbird! I love them and never see them in my area of Brooklyn.


Thanks for your visit and comment.

Glad to answer questions when I visit you...
