As I was bending down to get these shots, I heard the characteristic low thrumming of hummingbird wings, and looked up to see one hovering very close by, about 3 feet away. I didn't want to startle it by raising the camera suddenly, I just wanted to experience the moment. I was wearing a pink shirt, and I think it was looking me over to see if I was actually an enormous swath of pink flowers!
I love my garden right now. Despite all the planting and digging and moving of plants, and the watering, and all the backache that goes with that, it really is such a restful place to just sit with a cup of coffee and a book.
