After the Chase, a Perfect Pose
It was a beautiful cool evening, just perfect for a walk around the garden. This female humming bird darted from flower to flower on the trumpet vine daring Amy to take her picture. She buzzed and hummed alluringly, then another hummingbird swooped in and the two flew high into the air at top speed. They zipped around the garden, but Amy was patient and it paid when the female stopped to perch. There are still flowers for the hummers in the garden, but the cool weather tonight is a reminder that soon they will be speeding south instead of humming around here.
