Good Things Come…

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.

After perching briefly on a nearby vine – perhaps to pause and savor the flavor of the nectar…

…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. Β I guess it must be true that good things (or at least good things with wings) do indeed come to those who wait.

    It certainly did for you today, Karen, with thee priceless photos of Little Mrs. Hummer lunching in your garden. Almost every time I go out in the yard & stand quite still & wait a bit, I see or hear something remarkable, sometimes something I’ve never seen or heard before, right in my own back yard! Good things!
