The hummingbird was taken through a window, this is why the photo is somewhat fuzzy. He is enjoying the early morning just as the sun was rising, sitting on the very top of my viburnum bush; the post in the background is my hummingbird mister.
The zinnia I found in my butterfly garden.
Thank you, Lori
Hello, The viburnum was the favorite perching spot for my hummers too. I haven't seen them here for a couple weeks and the males have been gone much longer.
I found an explanation for the half and half colored Zinnia in a video talking about transposon activity in plants if you are interested: http://youtu.be/4BSf2F2L_P4
I'm excited to share your very interesting photos on the Friday Photo post. Thank you for sharing your observations. If anyone would like to share a photograph of nature send it to email@example.com.
