The McBone Birdwatching Journal; Ruby-throated Hummingbird

This afternoon a female ruby-throated hummingbird zipped in to carbo-load at our feeder.  What luck that the cameras were rolling!  While she supped on the sweet, sugary nectar, we were capturing the whole thing in beautiful HD:

Clearly pleased with the concoction, the emerald lass flicks her tongue after every draught.  If you blinked, you may have missed her take a shit before splitting. 

Thank you, technology, for showing us nature at her most elegant.
