A lovely couple from Tokyo visited today. They got here before I did (I arrived shortly after 8 AM) and already had their lifer Lucifer Hummingbird with photos to prove it. They got several more lifers while they were here.
This is my first damselfly photo for this year. I guess it's a Powdered Dancer, but I might be wrong.
I felt kind of puny today but forced myself to get some work done at least. We all tried for Elf Owl shots without getting anything very satisfying. I thought I'd wait until late afternoon when the light would be better but by then he had awakened and moved to another spot a foot or two away.
Tomorrow is my busiest birding day of the year and it's supposed to get into the 30°s tonight. But I think it'll warm up quick and birding will be good. I hope.
The hummingbird garden is currently overrun with Globe-mallow.
And although the ocotillo have been blooming south of here for a couple of weeks, it's just now blooming here.
