Here are a few pictures showing a hummingbird with flowers. Each photo shows a different kind of flower.
This Anna’s Hummingbird fed from the red Penstemon at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona. This Penstemon flower stalk was drooping low rather than standing upright, so the hummingbird was fairly close to the ground when this photo was taken.
This hummingbird is one of the many young birds coming through the yard this May. The young hummingbirds are often chased away by adult Anna’s Hummingbirds. But sometimes they can quietly feed at the flowers before they are noticed.
This Anna’s Hummingbird hovers near a Tecoma garrocha with its orange flowers. This Tecoma is closely related to “Yellow Bells” (Tecoma stans). It is tall. The flowers are a little more sparse than Yellow Bells and the blossoms are high up and in the open. The hummingbirds feed from this plant’s flowers through the summer in our yard.
This Rufous Hummingbird was photographed in Washington, in the Columbia River Gorge during summer 2013. The hummingbird is either an immature bird or a female … or both. It had found a purple butterfly bush next to a stream that emptied into the Columbia River. The flowers were high above the ground and in the open.
Thanks for coming by.
