  1. Thanks, Julia. The experts say that capturing the “catch light” in the bird’s eye makes it come alive in the photo.
    Can anyone identify the plants that the hummer is feeding on? A friend of mine (and maybe other readers as well) would like to plant some on her garden.


  2. Great photos Bill. The coral colored flower is a Phygelius. The purple flower is a Salvia ‘Amistad’. Hummingbirds love them!


  3. If you want to see hummingbirds earlier in the season plant native ‘Red Currant’, ribes sanguineum.
    The birds are often attracted to red flowers such as salvia, crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ and ‘Jupiter’s Beard’.
