July 25 photo of the day

I think at least one of my guardian angels is a hummingbird. I am fascinated with these fearless aerial acrobats. They are the only birds that can fly backwards and the sound of their wings was the inspiration for the light saber sound effects in Star Wars. I am delighted they call my tiny yard home. This hummer is a female rufous who daily visits the crocosmia outside my kitchen window, the fuschias in the backyard, and the petunia baskets on the front porch.
