The perfect shrub

Low light, slightly warmer, less wind. Big help. I could watch Ruffy behavior without freezing.
Finally, nice clear red spot. I've been trying to get that.

But much more fascinated is watching the feeding method. The mahonia blossoms make dining easy. Perch and feed. Yes, Ruffy moves around from blossom to blossom, from east to west very fast, but once at a blossom with open buds she perches and works the buds. Energy-saving.

The wings being used for balance, not hovering.

Sitting on po-po??

Lots more images to post. This treasure is fascinating.
