    Ruby-throated Hummingbird

    Denville, NJ

    Taken recently, through living room window. It only took about 3 days of having a new filled feeder out for a local Hummingbird to start visiting us. I put a feeder up in both the frontyard and the backyard and intentionally placed the feeders in habitat that includes both sunlight and a little bit of tree cover. My plan seemed to be to the birds’ liking so far.

    Morning Light on Woodland Trail

    I liked how the morning sun swept through a sliver across the forest providing some shadows and highlights in the understory.
