I took a few pictures while I was outside enjoying the evening sun. This wonderful view to the south is named Castle Cove (also known as "my" mountain). Then I focused closer to the house on our little hummingbird feeder.
I realize that lots of people have hummingbirds and there are tons of hummingbird pictures out there in cyberspace but I still want to make a contribution from my backyard. We have only one pair that returns every summer. This year I think just one baby survived which means we have a grand total of three hummingbirds at our feeder. Some feeders get countless little birds fighting over the sweet nectar which makes for entertaining viewing. I enjoy having just a few. The other day I rescued one of them from our garage window. It flew inside and didn't know how to escape. Those little birds feel so light. It's amazing how far they migrate when the time comes, up to 20 miles a day!
"A flash of harmless lightning,
A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening
From flower to flower he flies."
