Serendipity struck today. I had gone for a walk late in the day. It was hot and the world in my neighborhood was so quiet. Humans, animals and birds were all laying low in an effort to stay cool. The summer rain was coming and the air was heavy and dense.
By chance, less than a block from home, I noticed an Anna’s Hummingbird sitting on a wire in a neighbors garden. I quickly pulled out my camera and captured his buzzing around bright red bean flowers. This short video tells it all. I slowed it down a little so you can really enjoy this guys flower sipping technique.
