Hummingbird–Jennifer Nichole Wells’ OWPC

Jennifer Nichole Wells has challenged us to post a hummingbird photo this week. I have literally hundreds of them but I could not resist posting this little fellow who stopped by our feeder in Palm Desert a few years ago on Easter and stayed with us for the rest of the season. He’s been on this blog before but these are two different photos. David is the bird photographer. He has endless patience.

This is a Leucistic Hummingbird. It is easy to think he is albino, but note his eyes are not pink.

Flower of the Day–Godetia

These delicate little flowers bloom abundantly and reseed themselves after you think they are dead. I just dead-headed them and supposedly they will re-bloom. Linked to Cee’s Flower of the Day.

Jennifer’s Weekly Weather Prompt–SUN DOG

Hot and sunny in Reno most of the week, even though a week ago today the 6:00 AM temperature was 35 F with rain here and snow 30 minutes up the Sierra from us. Current temp is 95 F and expected to reach the 100’s. So typical of Northern Nevada. Visit more weekly weather reports at Jennifer’s Blog.

Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge–Giraffes

Joining in for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge:
GIRAFFES!

David took these photos at the Living Desert in Palm Desert, California, when we had family visiting from North Dakota. Although most of the facility is dedicated to desert flora and fauna, there is a section where you can see some animals from the African Continent. Unlike a Zoo, these animals have a vast enclosure to enjoy an almost free existence. The giraffes love to feed carrots, under the supervision of Park officials, from the hands of visitors, especially children:
