Just a feeder shot

mbrowne(9b Central CA)December 15, 2013

HI all. I've pretty much lost all my flowers due to freezing temps for a few nights last week. Thought I'd share a feeder shot from this morning:


This creeping lantana made it through but took a lot of damage. Not sure why they like it -- it seems like a pretty dry plant. Maybe desperation :)

Beautiful shots! Lantana (L. camara) is the fav plant in my yard too, blooming 8-10 mos per year, depending on winter weather.

Awwwww wow! You folks are so lucky to see those beautiful little birds! They are great pics and the feeder pic shows how small they are. Our birds are so boring apart from the robin
Kind regards

Another feeder shot :) There's some competition due to the oddly warm winter we're having. It's warm enough for the honeybees to be out, but not warm enough for their flowers. This is one brave hummingbird:

I've kept a feeder up this winter for a Rufous over-wintering here. Poor thing didn't have such a nice winter vacation this year, the blooms went to zero. Now I have rosemary and Carolina Jessamine blooming. But one possible migrant was checking out my plum tree the other day. "What, where's the Plum blooms?"
It was just hovering, looking, no blooms yet could see!

Great photos, looking forward to the spring here, wont see any hummers here till about the last week of april. I do prepare seedlings and overwinter cuttings for their expected arrival. I dont plant anything they cant use except for a few veggies for me.
