This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Word that contains the letter U prompt.
I decided to go with a natural history theme and had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of the Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
As this bird doesn’t have a ruby coloured throat it’s a female. Given how smart the birds plumage is I suspect that it’s a juvenile female hatched from an egg earlier in the summer. It was photographed on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario in August.
