Baby Hummingbird Day 24: Learning to eat

Wow. Baby almost looks as if it knows how to gather nectar on its own. In actuality it was sticking its tongue out into thin air. The flowers you see were a good foot behind the tip of its tongue.

It sat in the tree, patiently waiting.

Ah! Mama hummingbird was on her way for an afternoon feeding. Backlit here I love how you can see the transparency of her wing feathers.

Baby opens wide.

It's rather odd how all of a sudden the baby looks bigger than its mother.

But she still feeds it.

The feedings take mere seconds.

And then she's off.

Now fed, baby has to decide what to do next.

Ah! Another flying practice session.

A moment later we had lift off and baby was out of sight both higher and deeper up in the tree.
