One rainy af­ter­noon

Birds & Blooms - - Bird Tales - Lau­ren Slack WATER­VILLE, MAINE

in June, a fe­male ruby-throat took a lit­tle break from buzzing around the flow­ers and feed­ers to perch on the hum­ming­bird swing. She stayed there for some time, and it was fun to grab the cam­era and cap­ture the mo­ment. I love how fluffed and ruf­fled her feath­ers are from the rain.

SWING TIME Hang perches, like a hum­ming­bird swing, near sugar-wa­ter feed­ers for hum­ming­birds to rest.
