Hummer/ Hummer

Yesterday was a WOW day.  The female redstarts were anything but skittish.  They were at my feet foraging for bugs.
The best was the one hummingbird, a 12 second surprise.  This is the earliest that I've seen a fall migration hummer.  I waited about two hours and saw it fly by again, but no more pictures were possible.   It was an open-shade kind of day, drab light till later in the afternoon.
The second WOW of the day, the hummingbird moth.  Fantastic. I'd like these colors in my wardrobe.
