2020—Enjoying a Spring Morning

The patio door was open, the whole house fan was drawing in the cool morning air, the Mourning Doves were cooing, the Lesser Goldfinches were taking a morning dip in the fountain. I watched the scene unfolding in my garden, enjoying the spring morning. A spot of bright caught my attention in the back of the garden, a female Anna’s Hummingbird was preening on the end of a twig in the Photineas. She was perfectly positioned to catch the light on her breast with just a tiny spot of pink from the feathers on her iridescent patch. She looks like she was enjoying the morning as much as I was.
