Such a pretty world!

Yesterday morning it was cool and misting. I guess that was the reason the Lucifer Hummingbirds fought over the feeder that was under roof. Sometimes there were four there at a time but when I snapped this photo there was only one up by the ant guard. Such wimps (The hummers, not the Tennessee birders. They were real troopers)!

In Alpine today the bluebonnets are still spectacular and now the rose bush is too. I forgot the species, something like Fiesta, but don't quote me. Center background.

One thing I did see today that is not so pretty. Makes me sad.


  1. At least those are Yucca thompsoniana, not known to be a host for any giant-skippers.
