A Visit from a Hummingbird!


Sometimes it’s good to just stay home and be lazy. Goldy and I were eating breakfast out on the porch when a hummingbird visited our yard! I didn’t get a very good look at the hummer, but I think it was a female or juvenile Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. It hovered over my pentas plants that surround the porch, seeming to look straight at me. Then it took off for my nectar-rich flower bed, where it feasted on Mexican Sunflowers, Firebush, and Hot Lips Salvia. It stayed for a few minutes, then flew off, and I haven’t seen it again. But it was here!! :)

Since I didn’t have the camera handy, here’s one of my hummingbird shots from our last vacation.
