Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Archilochus colubris


Female or juvenile


Near marsh and woodland, in areas where Jewelweed grows profusely


Having sat in the backlot for days on end, this Hummingbird accepted me and my camera and would allow me to get within a few feet of her before flying away. She was very territorial and would chase any and all other Hummingbirds away
