Nature Through My Lens

January Hum


Here’s my fearless male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna). He’s braved the wind and rain and snow and ice and is still with us.

    • Ruth, thank you! We see him every day. He doesn’t seem to mind the weather! He sits on one branch in our Rose of Sharon. Rain or shine!

        Who knows, the canadian geese also come to us now for a number of years, maybe you can tell the hummingbirds we’d love to have them in Belgium too, it certainly is not colder here than it is in Canada 😀

      • Gwennie, I’ll put out the word! I think our climates are very similar!

        I think ours is less cold, minus 5 C° is cold here and occasionally we have minus 10 C° but not every Winter, en we don’t get a lot of snow either.

      • Gwennie, Minus 5 C, is cold for us too. We generally don’t get a lot of snow either. Some years we do but it depends on the ocean currents, El Nino and La Nina.
