Ruby Throated Hummingbird at Lake Artemesia.

I met Graeme early at Lake Artemesia and we walked the area for about three hours. It was a better day than some, and we found a few good birds.

A few Wood Ducks are still around, a hummingbird posed briefly, and a few others cooperated.Lake Artemesia 43
