Nectar seeker

A rufous hummingbird feeds on the nectar of a flowering fuschia bush near a farmhouse on a ranch near Elkton, Ore., on Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012.. Rufous hummingbirds spend the winter in Mexico and south Texas. In the spring they are known to migrate as far north as south-central Alaska.
The hummingbird appears to take a short nap on a nearby barbed-wire fence.
