Last night as we were eating our dinner, a hummingbird came to visit the flowers out on our deck. It looked similar to this one, but thinner.
It fluttered about all the little pink flowers, going from one to the next. Never going to one twice....how do they know that? Can they smell the nectar? It only went to the small pink flowers, not the red ones. Can you see the lower flowers next to the table? She, (I will call her a she because she was very petite and slender, not very much color...only green, you know those males, they get all the color!)... She stopped flying and sat on the table to get the to the lower flowers. It was SO DARN DARLING! We watched her for several minutes. Such a nice visit!

How lovely! Doesn't it feel like a gift when they visit you like that?

We have one that comes around our orange tree. I love watching it out the window. It just flutters from branch to branch.

Hummingbirds are so much fun to watch. So neat that you got to enjoy it so close.
