A few photos of female ruby-throated hummingbirds hanging out around a feeder at Big Sandy Unit Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge.
“Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers – a living prismatic gem … it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.” ~W.H. Hudson

They are so dainty and delicate Rebecca … my neighbor had feeders in front of her windows and loved watching them. In the Winter I sent her this link to watch the hummingbirds until ours returned in the warmer weather. There are multiple cameras here and usually a hummingbird can be found at one of the web cams: https://explore.org/livecams/hummingbirds/bella-hummingbird-nest
Thanks for sharing the link. I have two hummingbird feeders outside my screen porch that I can see from the kitchen and dining room windows. The hummingbirds are very active right now at the feeders in order to store energy for the upcoming migration south. I really enjoy watching them. The backyard seems so empty when they go.
That is what my neighbor used to say – she loved watching them right near her window.
