This tiny hummingbird was headed straight for this beautiful cactus flower.

Very nice! Beautiful flower and bird. Isn't it interesting how nature itself sometimes brings things together in a good way? Sometimes.

Your photos are excellent!

I love our British birds but really wish we had hummers too.
