Cracking Hummer

August 1st, 2021|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Ruby-throated Hummingbird

I have been lurking near these flowers for several days while Hummers come and go before I can grab the camera. Perseverance works – finally nailed it today as this fellow stayed long enough for his portrait to be taken and allowed retime to fiddle with the camera settings too. Feeling quite proud of this one if I do say so myself ;)

The flowers are Mexican Cigar Plants (Kuphea sp.) and seem to be even more of a Hummingbird magnet than even Monarda.

Pollination

A pair of bumble bees at work inside a male squash flower – hopefully they will later find themselves in a female flower and be able to put the pollen to good use.
