|A hummingbird approaches the "ocean view" feeder just off the front veranda
|You can see the post-ocular white spot that is characteristic of the ruby throats. Notice the drying laundry in the background. :-)
|They fan their tails out for aerial maneuvers and displays.
|Nice profile view.
|Sometimes they take a quick sip without perching.
|And sometimes they sit and stay for a while.
|They always keep on alert for predators and competition at the feeders. These birds may be small, but they are feisty.
