Feeding on Fake Flowers

There's a hummingbird feeder beside the porch of the cottage and on a fairly regular basis we hear the hum of hummingbirds arriving to sample it. I couldn't get too close to them for a closer shot unfortunately — they're fairly timid (unlike the ducks).

Update Aug 23 2005: Rufus was kind enough to send me this article which describes how hummingbirds hover. Thanks!
