Baby Hummingbird

IMG_1408

We have a goldfish pond in our backyard, and the hummingbirds love to drink out of the fountain.  They are so beautiful, and it’s fun to see them them drinking and flitting about the yard.  However, they are extremely territorial, and if one is drinking and another comes near they do become aggressive.  This last weekend was hot (yeah, it’s Phoenix), and we had an abundance of them taking shelter in the shade of the house, drinking from the fountain and taking a birdbath.  I heard something at the window, and what I found was this little guy who wanted in for a respite from the heat.  He stayed at the patio door for quite a while, with me on the other side of the glass watching him.
