Here is an Anna's hummingbird approaching one of the salvia plants in the afternoon.
As you can see, it gets very bright here in the afternoon, and very warm.
And suddenly a hummingbird will fly to one of the salvia plants, California fuchsia or lavender for the nectar.
I'm so glad to see how the salvia plants are starting to spread out and produce new foliage and blossoms. More nectar for the hummingbirds and bees.
Here is the same hummingbird feeding on the nectar from one of the salvia blossoms.
In the background you can see one of the cosmos orange sulphur Klondike blossoms to the left, and directly behind the hummingbird is the cosmos cupcakes white shrub.
