At the other patch

It's very hard getting eating pictures at this patch of jewelweed because hummer goes into reverse side and underneath,- eats, perches, grooms, oversees the patch, chases away intruders. I got a glimpse of the neck marking. Young male. I decided to watch non-stop. I wanted to see red, not easy. This depends on bird, angle of light, etc. I had time to wait.
Finally, young male for sure.
Underneath the blossoms two rose breasted grosbeaks were feasting on the seeds. Naturally, they were well hidden. First year females.
