Nectar for migrants

Tiny hummingbirds are really busy in the garden right now.

I am not really good at hummingbird identification but I suspect these are either Rufous Hummingbirds or Calliope Hummingbirds. Both these follow a migratory flight path which puts them in the northern Chihuahuan desert around about now.

I hope the 6th Avenue Shala garden flowers feed them on their journey. I am grateful for the pollination they provide In exchange for nectar

They are so fast and so seldom still, it is hard to get a clear image.

When these thumb sized whirligigs do rest, it is only briefly.
