Hummingbirds

 Hummingbirds

My owner is a home inspector in San Diego, CaliforniaHummingbirds are naturally attracted to orange and red flowers, as well as just about any tubular flower that they can poke their beaks into.

There is one plant that, at first glance, doesn't appear to have flowers that fit either of those traits, yet the hummingbirds absolutely love it: the Pride of Madeira.

Upon closer look, you can see that the stalk has hundreds of flowers of a tubular shape:

And if you look even closer, you can find many hummingbirds in the throes of culinary ecstacy:

When trying to get pictures of hummingbirds, it helps if you are patient, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.

And while you're being patient, look around. You just might find something else to take a picture of:

Hi Roy, I love the hummingbird shots.  I guess Russel took them.  It must have taken a lot of patience to get those shots, I know hummingbirds are very skittish.

Thanks for your comments, Liz.  Russel is a very good photographer.

Roy and Dolores Kelley visited Longwood Gardens on Saturday, February 12. 2011 to see the Orchid Extravaganza in the Conservatory. A wonderful world class exhibit. Canon PowerShot G11 camera. Photograph by Roy Kelley.

We expect to have very mild weather during the next few days in Maryland. It is a good time to get the fall work done in yards and gardens.
