A pretty female Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) checking out the bud of a Crocosmia flower. I’ve noticed that the bird punctures the bud to get it’s bill right inside the flower.

To all my friends, I apologize for not being in touch, posting and replying to comments. I’ve been under the weather for a week. I hope the worst is over. Thank you for your indulgence!

Here’s my Hummer of the day! I almost feel like apologizing for all the Hummers, but they are going mad with the Crocosmias and I have to follow suite!

This is a Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) female.
