"To Boldly Grow Where No Man Had Lawn Before"
You hosted a hummingbird hoe-down! I don't think I've ever seen so many of the feisty little creature at a feeder at one time! Beautiful photos, as usual. Your burgundy daylily looks a lot like my 'Spanish Harlem' - what is it?
That day lily is 'Bella Sera'. It's a really good one. Sunset at the hummingbird feeder here is like last call at a crowded bar. I tried to get the shot with 3 at each station and 4 more buzzing around, but the memory card was not in the camera. Let me know if you'd like a couple of fans.
Stunning pics Bail, and that last is just wow!
That's Rogers--new planting arrangement--ain't it cool?
Beautiful images and flowers from your garden dear Hoover.xoxoxo ♡
A nice way to end the weekend! Thanks.
Good blog post theme, I'm getting there because it's true. The 6 hummingbirds in one shot have it right, though they don't have contracts to fulfill or bills to pay!
they have a lot of competitive pressure, though...there's a lot of that going around.
Our hummingbirds are considerably less social...maybe it's Sunday go-to-meetin' time.
They cooperate when they are all hungry (dawn, dusk). Otherwise, the battles commence.
That's something I've always wondered about -- they seem to expend SO much energy in hostilities that it's hard to imagine it's an evolutionary advantage. The patch of phlox out back in July is like the skies over France in WWI.
Territorial battles when resources are scarce. Survival of the fittest and all that.
