Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Not very often do Ruby-throated Hummingbirds stop in at the oasis during spring migration, although they're quite common in the fall. This one took up temporary residence at the Lucifer Hummingbirds' favorite feeder today. And the Ruby-throated Hummingbird refuses to share. He just bathes and preens and feeds and catches insects and defends his temporary territory. Hmmm...

Had to come to town midday unfortunately, so didn't get to enjoy the butterflies. They aren't as active until afternoon.
