Birds, Bees and Blooms

Yesterday, I stalked a hummingbird in the garden.
I tried and tried to get a good picture of him (or her?), but he was so fast.
He also didn't like it when I got too close to him, so I had to sneakily zoom in from a distance.

I'm not sure if it is the same pair, or their children, but a pair of hummingbirds nest in the lilac bush on the edge of my yard. They have been raising their tiny little babies in the same spot for at least 5 years.

This was the best pic I took of him.

Here is his pretty green back.

He really likes every painted lady (flower).

He is so tiny!

Some water lilies in my pond.

Summer sunflower.
Doesn't that just look like pure Summer?
