photo of the day

Lunchtime at the hummingbird feeder. That IS condensation visible on the jug. For this particular feeder, Mom makes a half gallon of cane sugar nectar in the mornings, stores it in the fridge, and refills the feeder once or twice a day. The birds seem to love the liquid when it's nice and cool after a refill. These hummingbirds have become very accustomed to and unafraid of humans. Even if a person is standing a couple of feet away they will still turn their backs to you and feed. Fearless. They know who their "sugar humans" are!  Paya Bay Resort, Roatan, Honduras.
