Isn't She Lovely?

Last year's lantana plants brought in so many beautiful butterflies that I thought I'd try some again this year.

Almost immediately Cabbage Whites, skippers, swallowtails—and even a clearwing moth—arrived. But . . . then . . . what was that fluttering above the plants? It's a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird!

Indulge me, please, this is the first hummingbird we've had in our little Princeton Landing garden and it's very exciting!
