Patrice Hanlon pointed out this female hummingbird on its nest along a path in the Gardens at Heather Farm.The hummingbird and its nest blend together quite well and are not easily spotted. Thanks to Patrice for pointing it out to me and to others.
Of course, once I started taking pictures of the hummingbird, I wanted to try different angles.
In this picture, you can see a bit of the brightly colored feathers on its body and tail.
I think I like this view of the hummingbird best. She is a first rate subject, just sitting on her nest for long periods of time.
Here is a closeup of the hummingbird.
Patrice says that the eggs have not hatched yet so we'll keep track of progress.
