It's Summer!

Heat, humidity, drought ~ now heavy, sheeting rain and flooding!
Drenching rain didn't stop this tiny hummingbird. (seeing lots of hummers now whizzing to and fro blossom and feeder.  The bottom photo show this female perched in our Eastern Redbud tree)

Beautiful shots. We got our rain last Friday and it hasn't rained since then other than a few sprinkles.
I still have not seen any hummingbirds at my feeder. Do you use just plain sugar water in yours?

marie said...

Yes ~ same thing here in Maryland plus some pretty spectacular lightening!!
I love the last shot of the hummingbird and the heart shaped leaves! What kind of tree/bush is that? It's beautiful!

The rain would be so welcome here, as we get so little after June passes, but it does seem that you are getting too much of a good thing! Your photos have such wonderful detail of the rain and the hummingbird. He could not have been easy to capture with your camera, but you photographed him just right. I, too, am curious as to what the tree is called.
In joy,
Laurie

Now, that looks like the kind of weather I am used to here in the PNW!
Oh! The sweet little hummingbird ~ so thankful, I'm sure, that you are providing him with some handy nourishment! Aren't they just the dearest little birds?
Blessings!

Great photos! What a brave little bird.

We had bad storms here in WI today. People came in to the library where I work for shelter. Wind gusts were high, but gratefully, no damage.
