Rainy Day Hummingbirds @ The Dawes #1 ~ Perched & Pretty

Loved this clear-eyed beauty, a female ruby-throated hummingbird. I visit The Dawes often, and it always seems to go the same way. At first, the hummingbirds are very mistrustful and will do everything to spoil a clear capture. But then one will fly in and perch and seem to look intensely upon me, eye to eye, after which she seems comfortable with my presence. Takes me about an hour to establish this trust.Dawes 2013.08.31 135 - Copy
