Some days everything, including my camera, just clicks.
Yesterday was one of those days.
This female Broad-tailed Hummingbird tries to get nectar from American vetch.
But she can’t quite get her beak into the drooping flowers.
Animals don’t usually sit still and work this hard to get something. It just makes them too much of a target.
But the vetch is in a really cluttered area. She can’t get the nectar by hovering in front of it.
The vetch must be loaded with nectar to make it worth her while to work on it for this long.
But finally, she is rewarded, and gets to enjoy the nectar.
May your weekend be full of rewarding projects.
