Rich and I took his parents to Leu Gardens while they were here in Florida. Being turtle people, they were excited to see the turtles in the pond:
I was more excited to see this female ruby-throated hummingbird nectaring. It’s late in the year to see hummers in Orlando. I wasn’t close enough, and there wasn’t enough light, to get a really amazing picture. But this picture clearly serves as proof that we saw her!
We heard only a single goldfinch, though, and didn’t see nearly as many birds as we have in years past.
