August's Free Silky - Mama Hummer

This beautiful little hummingbird decided to build her tiny nest just above our fish pond which, of course, gives her access to all sorts of flitting and flying critters as well as nectar from nearby flowers to keep herself and her babies well fed. She also has a well-stocked feeder whenever she wants a quick snack.

Her nest is about the size of half of a walnut shell, and her two eggs are about the size of pinto beans. It's so amazing to be able to follow the progress of this tiny creature!
