Camera Critters #28
I know that the season is over. The hummingbirds have flown off on their migration to Mexico. But I miss them. I guess I'm trying to stretch the season just a little bit longer.
A few years ago, while I was visiting my daughter in California, I took this little photo in her courtyard. I really liked it because of the shadow.
In California, they seem to have hummingbirds all year, or very nearly. And why not? It's always warm and the flowers bloom year 'round. Here in New Jersey, the season is all too short. While it is here, I hang one of my feeders right outside of my front door, so that I can watch them from my easy chair.
This little lady decided that she owned all rights to that feeder this summer, and chased away any others who dared try to visit.
I had calibrachoa blooming under the feeder, and some preferred those blossoms, or at least investigated them before moving up to the feeder.
