On the road to Connemara, Ireland, headed toward the 12 Bens (hills).

After trying, in vain, to attract hummingbirds to our feeders this year, I figured I wouldn't get to see any except in other people's posts. However, when I went to visit the Butterfly Garden the other day, I was delighted to see a few flitting around along with the butterflies. The best part was getting to see them still in the tree!
I am not sure, but I think this may be a female Ruby-Throat. According to my "Birds of North America", that is the only one we have here on the east coast.
