Hummingbirds!

Amidst all the madness this summer, I did manage to do a tiny bit of personal work. For the last year or so I have worked to create a haven for our resident Anna’s Hummingbirds and the occasional Rufous. They have rewarded me with endless aerial acrobatics, unnervingly close encounters and even work to pollinate fruits and veggies in the garden. On top of all that, they even pose for the camera every now and again, not even flinching when I stand on a table a few feet away with an enormous lens trained on them.
