{sweet} bathing beauty...

I have a small trickling water fountain that I enjoy the sound of in my back yard/deck...lovely bright yellow American Goldfinches drink from it all the time...but look who decided to enjoy a DIP! A super sweet female Rufous hummingbird! Joining Darcy for Sweet Shot Tuesday... Sweet Shot Day

so precious. I would love it if we had wildlife in our now-urban jungle. Nothing but house-building machinery around here. Oh, and concrete - lots of concrete.
