|Rubythroat at the feeder|
No, a hummingbird, who came closer and closer until I could have touched him. "Hi there!" I said. He stayed right by me and then I realized it was the dwarf's red cap that interested her. It was a she. We stayed like that for a moment and she flew off and filled with awe, I carried the dripping red-capped dwarf (gnome) into the house.
I wonder if other "hummers" have buzzed him in the tree crevasse this summer. They buzz me when I am by the feeder, but this was special. Resolved: we will plant red nicotania next year. I love my tiny birdies.
