While Freddy was usurping the computer, I was off watching hummingbirds being banded....
this little guy was an immature male ruby-throated hummingbird (rubies are the only kind we have in our area)...he had just two teeny red throat feathers.
There were hundreds bombing the feeders....
while the swallowtails were bombing the Silphium perfoliatum.
A lovely way to sweat away a morning!!!
