Brazilian Ruby Throated Hummingbird, Female

Brazilian Ruby Throated Hummingbird, Female drinking nectar. She has figured out that this very strange flower does not have the nectar inside, like most real flowers, rather the nectar is dripping off it's outside. We drenched it in sugar water to attract the hummers. I love when you can see those teeny tiny feet curled up under their bellies.
