The pictures are fuzzy and a little dark, because the subject matter is hummingbirds, and they came at dusk and were very difficult (for me) to photograph. Scroll through. There are some images where there is only a fuzzy hint of red - that is the male I presume - two where there is a fuzzy suggestion of brownish red, which I guess is the female hummingbird.  Since the Ruby Throated hummingbird (Archilochus colubris), as I understand it, is the main variety that migrates through our region, the Southeast of the USA, these are probably of that ilk. If you look closely, you can make out the whirring bird wings. Amazing. Sometimes there were four or more tiny birds at a time on a single area of the lavender spires of a Buddleia, though I failed to capture the image of more than one in a shot, even when there appeared to be tiny baby hummingbirds whirring next to a larger swirl of the brownish ones.  There is an image of the path, so you can see how dark it was getting, and one of my head, a mistake selfie, but I decided to include it to show the street light on my head - dark and late enough for the automatic timer to activate the handy street light that illuminates the yard of our little duplex.  That light was only recently installed, and it has been a great boon for my night gardening. One night I worked out there til 1 in the morning, thanks to the bright light. Anyway, keep your eyes open whenever you are near the honey-scented Buddleia, commonly called 'butterfly bushes', in order to look for these very speedy, miniature beauties. . . . @hummingbirds #hummingbirds #rubythroatedhummingbird #hummingbird  #rubythroatedhummingbird  #buddleia #dusk #nightgarden #nightgardening  #happybaker @johaus17
Still lots of #monarchs covering the #buddleia flowers in early autumn. Not two colors I'd put together.
