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.
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.

Love the clarity of the water in this one.
hummingbird, Rufous female, comical capture, looking like she’s crazy over the spray from the fountain.

Love the vibrant yellow in this one.
hummingbird visitor to yellow iris. Had never seen the hummers feeding from the irises before. On our front patio, captured from open front window
If you look closely you will see the yellow pollen on the hummers beak. ( my Mom always called them Hummers 🙂 )
you can see that she added her name in the bottom right corner of this one with the date 2006 ❤️
Miss her soo much

My Mom caught this at the perfect moment.
She won contests for this one and this photo was also entered in magazines.

This is such a beautiful picture. Mom loved humming birds. Knew every fact about them that one could know ❤️
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.
