I’ve been trying to take pictures of all the hummingbirds that visit our feeder. They are fast little boogers so I have very few pictures that aren’t just a blur.
So I did a bit of research and found that Washington is home to four species of hummingbird.
We’ve had a truckload of black-chinned visitors (the little guy in the picture) and the other day we had a pair of rufous hummingbirds (what the pictures don’t show you is how iridescent they are in the light). The male is stunningly orange and the female is a much paler version. Males get to wear fancier clothes in the hummingbird world.
And in honor of our little hummers, I picked feathers as my theme word for this week’s Zentangle® tile.
