The Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are back in town and are busy battling over the blossoms!
This beauty flitted about the Lantana flowers…
…paused briefly to investigate the Butterfly Bush…
,,,chased away a rival from the self-claimed territory…and then returned for more Lantana.
Meanwhile, just around the corner, another regal Ruby-throated was enjoying the Zinnias.
These little lovelies are fascinating to watch and frustratingly fun to photograph. They don’t sit still for a second!
I’m hoping they hang around at least through the month of August, though if they want to spend September here too I won’t complain!
