This beautiful little lady was far braver than the males. She came much closer to me, and seemed to be much more calm about me moving in to just a few feet from her. I was hoping she would be brave enough to come take seed from me, but alas it was not to be. She merely wanted to point out to me that it’s simply not fair that the boys always get the gorgeous color and most of the attention.
