"Faith Feeding Her Baby"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
Faith, the momma ruby-throated hummingbird, which is on the "right" is feeding her baby at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. The momma is smaller than the baby because she is busy feeding herself and two others! The hummingbirds.net website stated,"When they leave the nest, the chicks are considerably larger than their mothers: they may weigh 4.5 grams, while poor Mom is down to only 2.5 g after the stress of raising them." Think about how much energy she has to burn!
I should have called the baby "Monkey" because of the positions he tried to feed in:)
