Hummingbird Perches on a Finger

Occurred on February 13, 2021 / Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Info from Licensor: "We had a snowstorm and I was taking the hummers out some freshly made syrup in a handheld feeder. The hummingbird was in the nearby holly tree watching me carry out the feeder and this is quite normal that it will approach me as I carry the food to a table. The hummingbird came to me and hovered near the hand feeder as per usual and I had my phone camera on video all ready to shoot. I suspected it would come and wanted to videotape it feeding. I did not suspect that it would sit on my finger but it chose to do this and I was thrilled to have its sweet butt on my finger. I have named this hummer “Sweetbutt” because of the experience of feeding on my finger. Sweetbutt was very light and it’s butt was actually warm on my finger. I was approached the day before this event and videotaped that incident as well. I then placed the feeder on the table after Sweetbutt flew off back to the holly tree."
