Favorite Garden Visitors

Hummingbirds are frequent visitors to our most vibrant flowers and some of our favorite garden guests. These shots were taken around San Diego County by local photographer Chris Mayne.

This little guy above is an extremely rare leucistic hummingbird -- almost albino, but not quite due to his dark eyes and beak.

All in a day's work, this Anna's Hummingbird takes a break on a dewy leaf. And, yes, he's sticking out his tongue.


  1. These are some of the sweetest critters ever!

  2. There is just something so magical about hummingbirds... These are gorgeous photos! Happy weekend, my friend ((HUGS))
