So Sweet!

Hi LivesInADream. I added this spotting to your mission Hummingbirds of BC. Please note also that this photo was taken by my friend and I did not arrive until the day after this photo was taken. I have attached my photo of the nest as it was when I arrived the next day:
I was sure sorry to miss their fledging!
