I love this picture so much because it shows Moms house and garden in the reflection. We spent many happy times there. The kids and I would stay for a week every summer. Have such fond memories of our nightly walk at the dike with her dogs .. 2 yellow labs..watching the sunsets.

Moms words:

Hummingbird, Rufous female, staring at her reflection in the gazing ball : ) Her beak is touching the mirror ball. She’s been fascinated with this mirrored reflection.

If you look closely you will see the yellow pollen on the hummers beak. ( my Mom always called them Hummers 🙂 )

Hummingbird Reflection

Heres Moms words about this picture:

This hummingbird reminds me of a fairy, as it sees its reflection in the mirror ball, on our front patio.
Captured from open front window. The hummer was totally fascinated by its reflection today. On one visit, it spent about 5 minutes hovering right close to the ball. DH noticed it, and I didn’t have the camera at hand, – so rushed to get camera & change lenses and it was still there, hovering around the mirror ball when I returned to the window, so this was one of the first images that I captured. It returned at least 3 more times while I sat there, but didn’t stay as long as the first visit.
We have never had the hummingbirds remain here this late. It’s cooling off quite a lot at nights now too, which is unusual for August.
