Texas Hummingbird and Lantana 805-1

Texas Hill Country

I have rarely seen hummingbirds pay any attention to our Lantana. But on this hot summer day, perhaps their options were dried up. With the only sugar and water coming from our hummingbird feeders, I noticed this little guy poking around the Lantana blooms. I set up my 400mm lens and waited, but it only took about 10 minutes to lure him back and capture a few shots of him looking for nectar. This was my favorite. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
