Camera-Shy





A ruby-throated hummingbird
Has found a ruby throne
Before a single leaf has stirred
He's made it all his own.

And from the kitchen windows
I watch him sit and preen
But when the flush of daylight grows
He's nowhere to be seen

I'd like to get a picture snapped
Beneath a clear blue sky
  But I suppose I must adapt--
My friend is camera-shy.

A very beautiful image, Connie. Your Hummingbird looks tired and needed the rest or was just admiring the view. Have a wonderful day, Oh and great poetry as well.
