Artist's Description

This image placed 6th in the Birds challenge on May 15, 2009.

My name for these little ruby-throated hummingbirds is “Flying Piglets”. They congregate at our feeders in swarms – no way you could count them. We never could afford to buy the hummingbird food sold in the stores. Every summer we use 100+ pounds of sugar and make an average of 8-12 cups of sugar-water per day to feed the crew.

Around this time of the year I’m usually found pointing toward the south as the flying piglets zip to and fro around my head. I’m more than ready for them to head to the next feeding resort somewhere in Mexico or South America!

Thank you for stopping by to comment on this image. I don’t normally respond with individual thank-you comments due to time constraints (slow dial-up speed). I prefer to spend my limited time on RB by commenting on your work instead. However, I want you to know how much it means to me that you took the time to view and comment on my work! Patricia
