Sorry for not being wordless ! :)
This little visitor is fairly common in my part of the country . They come in various colours . One of the most amazing things I find about these birds is the amount of noise they can make is so much louder than their size . With just about 2 inches of body length and another 1 inch for their long sharp beak curved at the end for the nectar , these are small birds , but can make themselves be heard loud and clear !!
Though I 'lie in wait ' in the morning to get an action shot of them hovering mid air like humming birds , it is as yet a mission unaccomplished !! :(
Happy Wordless Wednesday to all !!
P.S. Do enlarge for a better view of Pic 1 .
