Ruby-throated Hummingbirds

When we arrived here last month Teddy hung this hummingbird feeder outside a window. It wasn't long before a pair of Ruby-throated Hummers became regular visitors, feeding several times a day from the feeder. The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is the only kind of hummingbird that summers in Michigan so it was fairly easy to identify them.
They would dart around, coming and going so quickly that it was difficult to get a good photo of them but I finally managed to get this picture of the female.
