then went over to the feeder. Hummm. Where did all that seed go?
So he went back to the bush, stood up - and ate some flowers and tender leaves.
Then he went back and checked the feeder again - still empty! What the heck??
Then he went over and ate some of the ground cover nearby. He must have been really hungry, poor guy.
After a few minutes of nibbling at the ground cover, he went back and checked the feeder again. Still empty??? The third time his body language told me he wasn't as hopeful, and yes, it was still empty.
So he went back to that luscious bush and ate more it's flowers and leaves.
I guess he gave up on the seed feeder at that point and after a little meal of flowers and leaves, he scurried across the desert and away.
The funny thing is, the feeder is right next to the bush, so he had it in sight all the time. Yet, he kept going back to it and checking. I started rooting for him that there would be seed the next time, too, but... Oh, well. I sure enjoyed watching him :)
He's almost the same color as the ground here; like so many critters in nature, he has great camouflage.
This hummingbird was so bright in the sunlight. Sometimes when the sun isn't just right on them, you can't see the brilliant red color, but it was just right on this day. This is one of my favorite pictures from our stay here this time.
Same thing with the brilliant green on this hummingbird - you can tell it was a little windy, he has a mohawk:
