I put fresh nectar in the freshly scrubbed feeder at Hasty Brook last weekend and within minutes she arrived. She's not as flashy as the male but she seems calmer and less suspicious of me and my camera. Her tiny claws must be about the size of an eyelash.
This photo is begging for a caption don't you think? I can't tell if she's yawning or smacking her lips! Maybe she's blowing a kiss. Sneezing? Her eyes are closed!
I was excited to catch her sitting in a nearby tree, all fluffed up resting after her long drink.
She's rested long enough- BYE!!
Let's hear some caption suggestions! Sorry, no material or monetary prizes will be rewarded.

I'll be spending a week at the New River Birding and Nature Festival in West Virginia next April 26 through May 3rd and October 3, 4, and 5 I'll be in Milbank South Dakota for Doug Buri's Sparrow Workshop. If that's not enough, this morning I booked my flight to join Susan, Laura, and Kathi on October 23 for the Cape May Autumn Weekend!! I finally was able to track down my ticket credit from Northwest Airlines. I had cancelled my trip to Cape May on short notice last year due to my Mom's passing. Fortunately this year's Autumn Weekend falls just a few days within the 365 day window in which Northwest will allow me to use the credit. I have somewhat mixed feelings about being away from home on the anniversary of Mom's passing but she had so wanted me to take that trip last year and I think it will be good for me to be among friends.
