The Crown Jewel........

Ruby Throated Hummingbird


Like a crown jewel, the nest of a hummingbird is one of the great wonders in all of nature. Few of us have ever seen a hummingbird nest. Let alone a nest with babies. This is because they are nearly impossible to find. From the ground, they look like another bump on a branch. From above, an umbrella of leaves conceals them. I was so fortunate to be able to capture this female Ruby Throated Hummingbird with her two one week old babies.
