Tiny Surprise ~ Day 153

Another shot of the tiny Ruby throated hummingbird on my deck perch. The feeder is to the far left (out of the photo obviously). I think it is so cool how they sit way out on the end to be the lookout for other hummingbirds. We had 30 degree temperatures this morning. I was surprised to see him out. They usually wait until the weather warms up. But there are so few blooms and hardly no insects, I guess he has to eat and drink somewhere. He is always welcome at my deck feeder. 

I had to sit quietly and still for about 20 minutes to get this photo. But worth the wait. He is so tiny I know it is hard to see him in the photo but his iridescent green shines in the sunlight.
