I can just read this little Anna’s Hummingbirds (Calypte anna) mind as she comes into this Rose of Sharon flower. Delicious!

A Chance Encounter

Here’s something I’ve never seen before. Both of these Hummingbirds are very possessive of their territory. But here they are sitting a couple of feet apart in the same bush. The top one is a female Rufous (Selasphorus rufus) and the bottom one is a female Anna’s (Calypte anna.) Needless to say I was quite happy to get them together!


A Big Stretch

Here’s a female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) deep in the Butterfly bush. As she sat here she would casually reach over and have a drink from the nearby blooms!!
