Hummingbird and Oriental Lily


Last week the hummingbirds were at the phlox. Yesterday, the juveniles seemed to be checking out every flower possible. I'd never seen one at our Oriental Lilies before. I can't imagine there's much nectar there for them?

  1. You've got the bird really focused, and the framing really works for me. I've seen these lilies in Florida.

    1. Thanks for the nice note, Maria. I was worried because I had to crop the top part of the flower so much...

  2. Lovely photograph of a beautiful hummingbird! Our feeders are especially busy right now with all the baby hummingbirds hungry for sugar water. Hummingbirds are such a delight!

    1. Thanks, Julie! I imagine ours will be heading your way soon. Already there aren't as many males around. Keep meaning to ask you where you're from - I'm a Chicago girl, too! :-)
