A Holiday Hummingbird!
First time I saw him was on my birthday through a piece of cold glass window.
I have never ever seen a hummingbird in this location in December. I saw him looking in the window on my B-day and I could not believe it! Today, I saw him again and got a couple more shots to share. You just never know what You are going to see next so keep watching! Something else to delight the eyes today is the Sweet Gum Tree. Wow-does his color really POP! Info shared from Wikipedia Pages and link to the album photostudy are located below. Last, but not least, is an old lonesome dove; an Inca Dove. Enjoy!
Liquidambar styraciflua, commonly called the American sweetgum, sweet-gum(sweet gum in the UK), alligator-wood, American-storax, bilsted, red-gum, satin-walnut, or star-leaved gum, is a deciduous tree in the genusLiquidambar native to warm temperate areas of eastern North America and tropical montane regions of Mexico and Central America.
