Flora & Fauna Friday
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.

Thanks! I took many. 🙂
Until I got a hummingbird feed I didn’t have any idea that they had long, long tongues that they used to “lap” up the sweetened nectar. Heretofore, I had only seen them hovering around the flowers, sticking their beaks into the heart of them. With the feeder, they can perch, and watching one stick her beak into the hole, and then withdraw it and lick her “lips” is worth the price of the feeder.
Wow! I’ve never observed lip licking. Mine have no use for the feeder right now, so many flowers. They stay around all winter, though, and I can’t keep it filled.
Wowza ! That is an amazing shot !
