Who will pass this night?

Ruby-throated Hummingbird (female)

Perched in the overhead grape arbor, taken though the living room window from my comfy Stressless leather chair. She was sitting, waiting, watching the male swinging back and forth in front of her, suspended on a mid air pendulum. If he is really good at it, they mate. If not, she picks another. I only describe this because it is waaay beyond my ability to photograph it. He was a pixel blur.

It is a brand name, not a state of mind.
