In our garden we have a metal statue of a crane.  It’s beside the birdbath.  Lots of birds come in and like to perch on the statue before hitting the birdbath.

Here’s an American Goldfinch.  Breeding colours have faded as summer progresses.


Anna’s at Dusk

An Anna’s Hummingbird comes into the flowers at late dusk, perhaps for that final sip before she roosts for the night.


Little Visitor

I went out this afternoon to specifically get a few shots of our first Gladiola of the year.  While doing the this Chickadee came over to see what I was up to!  They are very curious about anything that goes on in the garden.


Hummer & Lucifer Two

Here’s another shot of the Hummer and the Lucifer.  I am completely enamoured with both the bird and the flower.


Great Backdrop

A House Finch hen on one of our feeders.  I thought his was a great backdrop.  The bird feeder was there before the flower, which is a Rose of Sharon.


Stopping to Smell the Flowers

This very brightly coloured White-crowned Sparrow seems to stop to enjoy the flowers.
