The porch

We have a porch/balcony that we let the (indoor) cats onto in the summer.  They each take up positions where they can spy on the neighbors and watch for birds.  Hanging from the eaves is a hummingbird feeder.  While I occasionally try to take a picture of a hummingbird, they are both the size of a paper clip and faster than the speed of sound.  The cats, however, all look ardently upward and hold very still when there is a hummingbird at the feeder.  So this is a picture of the presence of a hummingbird, not a picture of a hummingbird.
