A female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) at one of our feeders. The Hummers were quite active today. Don’t know if it’s because of the final passing of our last storm or a forerunner to our next storm coming in!

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!
