Bonus: Hummingbird at Dusk

The hummingbirds are swarming my neighbor’s feeder. Started shooting way late and everything was dark and grainy. Will try a bit earlier today. But here’s a cute guy doing his thing. Was hard not to get the feeder in the shots…especially acquiring focus in that light. But this one isn’t terrible. And it’s been a while since I’ve bonused.

Are very interesting on this one. That’s a metallic green sweat bee on a sunflower in the early morning. Today, in fact. And it’s nice to be among the bees again…although I’m hitting the road this weekend for a festival in Fort Collins, Colorado. Busy summer. The bees seem to be at their peak now. As do the wasps. I’m a live-and-let-live kind of guy, but I got hit on the neck the other day…just a small bit of venom, it seemed…but that source nest is no longer. Ugh.

So…here’s today’s bee. Stay tuned for some more bonus fun in just a minute!
