The Ewing and Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden, Kansas City MO

"The Ruby-crowned Kinglet is one of the smallest songbirds on the continent, weighing in at just a little more than half a chickadee. Mostly green and hard to spot, it hovers in mid-air as it catches tiny insects. In early spring, the kinglet's rollicking song echoes from the forest edge in the lowlands. By late May, he is singing and nesting at mile-high altitudes in mountain forests". Birdnote.org

Photo taken last December. They just don't hang around long enough.

I took this on a foggy morning at Legacy Park on the Poudre River in Fort Collins, Colorado.

"This ability to hold a stationary position in midair without flapping is accomplished by facing into the wind, and is so characteristic of these birds that it has come to be called kiting." Allaboutbirds
