This ruby-throated hummingbird feeding on Jewelweed photo is one of our first hummingbird photos taken in the wild, not in our garden. This photo was taken at a local wildlife refuge and it seems that the Jewelweed is one of their favorite food sources in this area. There are plenty of flowers in the refuge but most if not all of our sitings are on the Jewelweed.
We have been taking pictures for years of the hummingbirds feeding on the potted plants on our deck and the flowers in our garden. If you are interested, you can see some of those pictures on our hummingbird blog Taking hummingbird pictures in the wild just adds a new challenge to our photography.
