This was my forth attempt in the last five or so weeks to get these shots. Every time I managed to run down to get my camera, I scared this little bird away. This is the balcony adjacent to our living room. I filled the pots with tiny shoots of Habiscus and they have been growing steadily since last year.
I knew this bird, from the Warbler family, would return because of the abundance of Aphids on our balcony plants. My policy is to remove affected branches – but of course I miss few. This little angel flies in, now and then, and has a feast.
It’s such a tiny bird and so light, it doesn’t even shake the branches when it perches. It spends an hour or so flying between the plants – eating away. I could watch it all day.
