I also frequent the butterfly forum, and there are tons of pictures posted there...Here there are none!

Post your best/favorite hummingbird pics!!! (without copyright infringement, please)

If you dont have any hummer pics, post a pic of your hummer garden, or favorite plant or container.

OK I don't have any of pics hummers, and my Monarch pics are on my old computer, but I'll post something in the next few days.

Beautiful photos!

Mbrowne, I think that's lantana. I have yellow lantana and the leaves and flowers are very similar.

Spaceman13, re: tall verbena. Have you tried seeds? I wintersowed it last year (seed sown outdoors in winter, in a covered container) and it bloomed that summer. Some of the plants came back this spring, but we moved this July and I didn't take them with me. I bet it would come back every year for you.

On 08/15/13 I had a Rufous visit my feeder here in southern Virginia. He left the next day but it was exciting to play host while he was here.

gregscott, as I'm sure you know, it wasn't the pics that got your post removed. Pics don't violate the "no advertising" policy here. They have a link to the policy at the bottom of every page.

This one I took on the 10th of November. It's probably the same Rufous that's still here. Two freezes in the high 20's here so far. Sometimes he answers when I call him, other times I see him or just hear his chatter.
