Who is getting the reward in this picture? The newborn hummingbird getting a meal? The hummingbird mom who just was rewarded with two little hatchlings? Or, me for having them perched just above my barbecue? I wasn’t able to barbecue at all that season because of the little babies. That was three years ago and now they have a nest in another tree by the spa.
I’ve stepped out several times to take a photo of the mother nesting but she is still too timid and immediately flies away. This time the nest is hidden on a heavily leafed branch and it’s more difficult to get a sharp picture of the mom nesting without the leaves taking away the focus. I think we can use the spa except that it’s still too cold.
