Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

One of the reasons that I love the Desert Botanical Garden so much is that you never know what you might see on any given visit. On Saturday I was treated to a rare sight indeed. This tiny little hummingbird sitting on its nest. One of the garden volunteers saw me carefully taking photos and told me that this was a Anna's Hummingbird and that there are two eggs in the nest and they are the size of small jelly beans.
I feel so privileged to have seen such a remarkable sight.
