When we looked up, we saw a tiny young Ruby-Throated Hummingbird sitting on a wire having just finished dining in my garden: note the pollen on its beak. Robin had her camera at the ready and snapped this delightful shot to capture the moment. I thought it was brilliant! And learned that Hummingbirds actually chirp!
For Robin's birthday, I made her a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream frosting. (She's going to need a gallon of milk in order to wash down the chocolately goodness!!!) I wanted to pay homage to this wonderful photo and moment in time and placed a little hand-painted, gum paste hummingbird on the top, complete with [sugar] pollen and all.
