Unique Feeding Behavior

Some photos are intended as high art. Some are meant to show incredible photographic skill and razor sharp image.

 

This is neither. This photo is bird behavior documentation, grabbed spontaneously as the behavior occurred. This little hummingbird visited the nectar feeder, then flitted to the grape jelly...probably out of curiosity. Hovered around the jelly long enough for me to grab the camera, then actually moved in and started eating (drinking?) some jelly.

 

Must have liked it, for there have been several more jelly visits, and apparently the word was passed on, for at least once two little Ruby Throats have been there together.
