2023—Not Just Red Flowers

Hummingbirds aren’t attracted just to red flowers. This female Anna’s Hummingbird sips nectar from a Blue Lithodora plant, one I just added to the garden a couple of days ago. I saw this plant for the first time at Green Acres when I was there replenishing plants in my hummingbird garden the other day. I couldn’t find any Blue Salvia which is a hummingbird favorite and I liked the looks of this so I planted it in a basket on a stand. It is one of the plants strategically placed so I can photograph the Hummingbirds from my patio door. I already had my Z9 and Z800mm lens with the 1.4X teleconverter on a tripod at the ready so when I saw her hovering over the plant, I clicked.
