I take a picture like this almost every year as I can’t resist the humor of a poppy blossom seemingly sticking its tongue out at me. A tiny ant is along for the ride.

The ruby-throated hummingbirds are back! This little fellow was buzzing around our back deck where the Manchu cherry bush is in full bloom. He paused ever so briefly on a branch displaying is stunning throat feathers.

I spent some time stalking this song sparrow yesterday morning as he hopped about in the sumac in part of our front field. He didn’t seem too bothered by my presence, allowing me to get in fairly close as he hopped from branch to branch pausing to loose is lovely song.
