Humming Along

The gardens are like little airports now, filled with every imaginable kind of winged creature landing and taking off, landing and taking off. With so many things to shoot, sometimes it's just better to just stay in one place and wait for them to land. Which is exactly what we did with a pair of hummingbirds who were feasting on a patch of Mexican Sunflowers.

    I love watching the hummers slurping at a feeder but seeing them feast on flowers is much more fun. Beautiful shot Larri!

    What a fabulous shot Larri. I think you have the right idea. Sit and let it all happen around you. You get that sense in this image - the buzz of activity; the stunning colours. I always wondered what those flowers were. I see them in Florida. They grow on a vine, right? Amazing colour. Happy Sunday - seeing this is a lovely way to start my day.

    Incredible capture - they're so fast and flighty, but you've caught this one perfectly, with lovely background, too.
