New England, July '22 - Hummingbirds

We've been back home for just over a week, before which we enjoyed 16 days in the States with our lovely family - variously in Vermont (five nights in a quaint small town) and Western Massachusetts (in the sticks at the family homestead, and in Greenfield in full-on, joyous uncle mode). It was all about the family, which was more than fine, but as always, there were local walks and poke-around sessions with the bins and camera.
Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were well distributed (as you'd expect around there in the height of summer), but as always, the best and closest encounters came in the garden in Warren, where watching them at point-blank range while sitting on the porch with bagels and coffee was a routine pleasure (missing it already of course). What birds, really.
