It’s High Summer

I can again indulge in my passionate pursuit of the ultimate hummingbird shot, that and sitting for long periods in the sun sipping Pepsi watching and listening to the many birds that frequent my neighborhood. And while it’s increasingly hard to trump pictures I’ve posted in the past, each picture seems magical in its own way.

As usual it’s the crocosmia that attracts the hummingbirds to my yard:

As you can see from the beak, these flowers provide an immense amount of nectar as hummingbirds reappear routinely throughout the day.

It’s not unusual to have hummingbirds fighting over the flowers or even to have one sitting nearby, standing guard over HIS garden.

As for me, I’m perfectly willing to share my garden with as many hummingbirds as want to stop by.

  1. After 3 year old granddaughter Mira’s excitement over seeing them on Wednesday, I will forever after have to refer to them as “honey birds”. It just seems so fitting somehow…
