  1. This sweet hummingbird photo really is special, Deborah. I liked the lantana flowers of pink and yellow. The whole effect is almost spiritual. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Beautiful capture, Deborah! I like to see birds in their natural environment. sorry, I still didn’t respond to your email. My computer crashed just a few days before you all came, so I had to deal with the after math – now I have an Apple, but have forgotten the simplest things (it was 20+ years ago I had one) so my internet work goes very slowly:(
    You are probably going to capture the solar eclipse?

    1. Thank you so much Jesh! I hope your Mac commands come back to you quickly.

      We used to be Mac then work switched to PC so we switched b/c we work from home a lot. Now we’re so used to PC that when He-man recently switched to a Mac he spent a lot of time frustrated b/c the hardware, and a lot of the things that come with a PC aren’t standard on the Mac he got. He’s finally got it all set up the way he wants it and I’m not hearing complaining about it.

      1. the only thing I sorely miss is Photoshop, so am running back and forth from Jac’s (because he has it on his) and mine – have my work cut out for me:)

  3. Great shot Deborah!! I love hummingbirds. I’ve recently seen a green one coming into my yard and am planning to make up a batch of sugar water for the feeder. He seems to like my hanging basket of petunias. Sadly, my plant growing skills are lacking or I’d be trying to attract more butterflies and hummingbirds! 🙂

    1. A Green one! Oh how lovely! I wonder if it’s an Anna’s or something more exotic and tropical?

      My plant growing skills are very poor, but the Lantana that attacks both Fritillarys and Hummers is doing nicely without anything from me. It gets watered by the sprinklers that are on a timer or else it would have surely died.

      I’ve always wanted one of those Butterfly Bushes, but they get so big, and need lots of sunlight. I don’t have a place big enough for one in my landscape now.

      1. I’m not 100% sure as it leaves so fast that I haven’t got a close look. I did check to see which hummingbirds are in Virginia. It could be a Ruby Throated or possibly a Green Violet-Ears (although this one is unconfirmed as having been seen in Virginia).
        We have a butterfly bush, but it is very spindly as it had already been here a while when we bought the house. And, of course, it’s on the side of the house that you can only see from the kid’s upstairs bedrooms or my bathroom!

    1. Isn’t she something! She lives in my neighbors Oleander that is along side our fence, but she perches in my flowering Plum tree to survey her territory, and she loves the Lantana in my yard for her nourishment.
      It’s been lovely having her reside here for several years now.

      Thank you so much Dan! Don’t be too jealous. You have bunnies, and chippy! I don’t have those. 🙂
