Female (probably) or juvenile Ruby-throat at the pineapple sage in our front yard here in northside Richmond about 11:00am today. It stayed around to sample a multitude of blossoms. The pineapple sage came into bloom about three days after the large (for us) number of Ruby-throats had departed. I thought at the time what a drawing card the sage would have been. Perhaps its role is to nourish the latecomers. Ellen You are subscribed to VA-BIRD.
