Happy Canada Day!! Canada Day fireworks from a couple of years ago.
from the church I posted a couple of days ago.
The rufous hummingbirds have arrived....
That hummer is gorgeous,i don't think we have that kind here in S.Ca.
Kathi, the rufous mostly migrates through So Cal. We do have a very similar-looking hummingbird - the Allen's. The main differerences are that the Allen's has a green back & a different voice than the rufous. They seem to becoming more populous; I never saw one 10 years ago. Now we have two or three in the yard year-round (we're in Pasadena).

from a friend's wedding yesterday. We did the video, but I couldn't resist taking a few photos, since I was facing the bride.
