Hummer and Great Blue Lobelia

Hummer and Great Blue Lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica)

I've been trying to enjoy the hummers in the garden before they start heading south for the winter. Yesterday I captured this one nectaring on a native wildflower Great Blue Lobelia.

Great shot!
We have a mother and 2 young right now, I have been watching her show the babies the ropes, so to speak. They will be leaving here around Oct 1, sorry no pics, I'm just not fast enough!
