When I first walked out into the front yard with my camera this afternoon there was very little activity – but the sun was shining and my soul was in need of a little photo-therapy, so I decided to wait awhile and see who showed up.
After about 15 minutes of standing still and silent I was rewarded with a visit from a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, who made a beeline for the Butterfly Bush.
Next this flitty little female headed over to investigate one of the few remaining Canna Lily…
…and then she hovered about the Zinnia’s for a bit.
…she darted back over to the Zinnia’s for some more taste-testing.
It was such a treat to get to take her picture today. I guess it must be true that good things (or at least good things with wings) do indeed come to those who wait.
