Hi Carol! Thank you for these great images! I am fortunate this year to watch hummingbirds in my garden every day. They come mostly to monarda. Recently, they had a battle, 5 or 6 of them. Comparing with your green bird, the color and pattern of my birds is similar, but there are differences too. Love the pictures of your garden. Tree hydrangea is awesome!

Hummingbirds look so exotic to me over here, we don't have them.

Love the middle meadow.

Your middle meadow is gorgeous! Amazing captures of the caterpillar emerging! So incredible to witness through your photo series.

Sunita said...

Carol, you've outdone yourself this time. Those photos of the caterpillars hatching are just amazing! I've never seen that before.
Wish we could import some hummingbirds to India. They're so exquisite! We do have Sunbirds but I think the hummers are just special.

Hi Carol, they look suspended in space, very vivid and beautiful, especially that small egg in a very wide space. Excellent. regards.

Carol, Your middle meadow is looking beautiful. Is that tall daylily Autumn Minaret? Mine just started blooming this week, and I love the way its flowers float at the top of those slender 6' flower scapes. -Jean

Carol said...

Oh! Thank you! Thank you! You are all so generous with your support!
Patty, I should take lessons to learn more about my camera and lenses. I do work hard though and patience is a big part of my capturing some of these shots. Luck too!
I hope this answers your question too Deb. Thank you!
Noel, thank you for asking . . . I am trying to be well. I miss visiting everyone. I hope things will improve soon.
Jean, I am not sure . . . I am terrible about labeling. I will have to ask my neighbor. I love the simple flowers and great height. Hope you enjoy yours!
