To Feed A Hummingbird…

You will need a little bit of patience, and not to forget, rock-steady hands.

According to Wikipedia, the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds measure only 7-9 cm in length, and weigh 2-6 g. These delicate creatures are the only species of hummingbirds that regularly nest east of the Mississippi River in North America.

Russ Thompson, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, was able to entice the male of a family of migrating hummingbirds to eat out of the palm of his hand.

This was one of the amazing videos he took during feeding sessions.
