Close-in humming

The rufous hummingbirds that arrived last week have not been around today. This male Anna's is a younger guy than my buddy Jim.

He's not wild about me hanging around the feeders but doesn't challenge me the way Jim would.

I had a chance to catch a few images of the nightly mega-feeding before it got too dark to see where he landed in the tree.

Ok, the last one is not a bird. I couldn't resist the glistening droplets on my new African daisy. The hummers might not pay attention to them but the butterflies will like them.

Check out the gallery of my favorite Hummers.
