8/25/2013 Lorain, Ohio, USA – I was finally able to capture the hummingbird which visits my garden each day since the Cardinal Vine began opening. This one is the female. The male is a brilliant emerald-green. I have seen him but haven’t been able to capture him on video or camera. They are very quick and very shy.
This morning I simply set up the video camera on a tripod, and let it run. I snipped these stills from the video. If you would like to see the video, I uploaded it to YouTube. The video may be found here: http://youtu.be/ZFlzulcifns
