This isn't a black and white photo.
It was taken mid-morning from our patio.
The sky was gray again, and air quality very unhealthy.
The birds and insects still deal with it.
Here are two Anna's hummingbirds perched on branches of the neighbors' crab apple tree.
I make sure that our plants still get watered a couple of times a week so that they still grow and produce flowers and nectar for the pollinators.
