and my zoom isn't strong enough
. Do they stay in one area all season? I'm going to get dh to pick up some grape jelly tomorrow and hope they stick around for a while yet
I'm so happy for you LP!
If you get some kind of plastic container (dollarstore ones are great) for now and screw it down onto a post or flat surface and fill it with the jelly, they'll come back with their babies and friends and stay all summer!
It's so cute to see the bigger ones teaching the little ones how to eat the jelly out of the container. Last year, the little babies came up to the feeder around July.
