Anna's Hummer resting

Between lengthy drinks at the feeder this afternoon, the Anna's Hummingbird spent a lot of time relaxing nearby, but kept a sharp eye on the neighborhood traffic. I just read in the National Geographic article about hummingbirds that they spend 80% of their time perched. Presumably that helps to conserve precious fuel.
