Feeding A Hummingbird

This is Henry, from week 2 of the 52 week photography project showing some trust. My first ‘interaction’ with him was yesterday, when I found him sitting on a small branch just about head-height. I slowly reached my hand out to him and he sat whilst I touched his chest with the back of my index finger. A very special moment.

The photograph below shows a time today when he flew over and fed from a feeder I was holding. At one point he stood on my finger–those little claws are sharp, but Henry barely weighs a thing.
