My bottlebrush is just beginning to bloom; it didn’t take this hummingbird long to discover the very first blossom and relish its sweetness.

    Beautiful and presented in your very own special way; packed with love and Light! Awesome work my swet friend! XX JD

  • Thanks so much, Joyce! This little mite caught me by surprise; I usually don’t see hummingbirds until later in the spring or summer. It was a joy to see his early arrival and a joy to share it with appreciative people like you, dear friend!

    How gorgeous Bonnie!!! I have the Bottlebrush plant (not yet in flower) but in the UK and I think all of Europe, we do not have Hummingbirds!! Such wonders they are! I saw my first and only in Peru!!! Glorious capture!!! More please! ;o)))

  • Thanks to Hurricane Gustav, I invested in new flowers after the old gardens were destroyed. Bottlebrush is a newcomer to my yard and am I glad about its presence. The hummingbirds love it, and I think the butterflies will, too. Thanks so much for always being so supportive and kind to me in my endeavors! You are a true friend.

    Beautiful. Love the color of this.

  • Bottlebrush is a vibrant red which attracts hummingbirds so I’m sure the birds love it as much as you do! Thanks for taking the time to view this photo and to leave such kind words.

    Excellent timing, beautiful image! Dee

  • Dee, you are so kind to view the photo and write such supportive words. Timing is essential with these extremely rapid little birds; they give me a run for my money! But it’s so much fun; glad to share the joy with you.

    This has me saying, “OH WOW”! This is another one of your beauties of nature.

  • Wish I could have gotten closer, Sher, but you know I’ll keep inching there! Thanks so much for your comments; you have a very discerning eye so I appreciate what you have to share with me through your “lens”. God bless!

    Amazing little birds. I was blown away when saw my first one in USA, this shows their size in relationship to a plant that I know. Great photo.

  • I guess I’m always trying to get super close to these birds, but your comments made me realize sometimes it’s good to pull back and give people a sense of perspective and a point of reference to help determine a bird’s size. Thanks for your valuable input.
