Spots of Colour
The other day, I was surprised by a flying spot of colour. A male ruby-throated hummingbird came by to get a drink from the hose as I was watering the garden. After his drink, he positioned himself at the end of the spray and had a thorough shower, ruffing his feathers so the water could get everywhere. Finally, he flew to a nearby branch and preened himself. Then, off he went, all spiffed up and ready for some food.
