Last year, dusk was falling and I was outdoors doing a bit of gardening trying to finish before it got too dark. As I was working, I heard the characteristic sounds of a hummingbird very close by. He was actually very close, so I ran indoors for my camera.
When I returned, I had a hard time figuring out where he was. I knew he was there….I could hear him. I knew he was in my neighbor’s Eucalyptus tree.
Can you see him?
He blended in so well with the Eucalyptus leaves. I think he was hoping that I wouldn’t notice where was hiding.
But then he decided to come out and let me take a picture of him…
Anna’s hummingbirds are frequent visitors to my garden and are year round residents.
Have you ever had a hummingbird play ‘Hide and Seek’ with you?
