Hawks & Hummers to come..... August 28, 2011

 A young Red-tailed Hawk that flew over the house this weekend, screaming for food from its parents. Raised in the neighborhood with its sibling that I've seen on several occasions, I hope they stick around for the winter.


A late blooming Cone Flower with its attendant Bumblebee is always a welcome subject in front of the lens


A closer look at the not so little pollen gatherer.


I'll be making a return trip to Arizona in a few weeks and am looking forward to the many Hummingbirds that I'll encounter in the southwest portion of the state.

With any luck maybe I'll run into another White-eared Hummingbird.


I'll most likely see several Magnificent Hummingbirds like the youngster below.


and with any luck a few adult males like this beauty.
