The last few days have been beautiful.
The temperatures are climbing,the snow is almost gone
and the birds are returning.
I have not got any new pictures to show,simply because I have not had time to do any editing,but I do have a few pictures of birds which will return in a month or so.
This Ruby-throated Hummingbird was taken by Jake in 2009.
All the pictures today were shot in Winnipeg at the English Gardens.
The remaining pictures are taken by Ruth in 2009.
Obviously they have all been done on the same day and among the same flowers,this is what happens when the birds are so busy feeding,they pay no attention to the humans with the cameras.
The Hummingbirds love these Monarda or Bee Balm as they are also called.
For those of you you already have Hummingbirds around these pictures may not be too exciting,but for us,who still need to exercise patience,they may help to remind us of what is to come.
I hope that these flying jewels brought a ray of sunshine into your life today.
