Hummingbird moments

Tall garden phlox. You’ll have to imagine the ruby throated hummingbird sipping nectar from each tiny flower.

What is it about hummingbirds that capture our attention?

I was working in the garden a couple of evenings ago and looked up and there she was. I stood still and watched her going from one tiny flower putting her tiny beak into each blossom. The phlox smelled lovely and sweet.

After visiting flower after flower, she sat on the top wire of the vegetable garden fence about three feet from my elbow flicking out her long narrow tongue which glistened in the fading sunlight and didn’t seem to notice me at all. She rubbed her beak against the wire and then she was gone. One of those moments your try to capture with the camera in your mind and heart.
