Mike the Hummingbird

Anna's Hummingbird, Calypte anna, patiently guarding the feeder from his perch on my apricot tree. Even though the apricot tree no longer has leaves and in spite of the feeder emptying out while I was visiting Mom for the holidays, my faithful hummingbird was there on his favorite branch waiting for me to refill the feeder when I returned. I think I'll dub him Mike. Of course, I'm open to nominations. I don't suppose Mike will mind one way or the other.

He hangs out, I bring food for him. What's not to like? I think he knows a good thing when he finds it.
