While I was letting Sadie the dog “do her business” in the backyard last evening, something large and fast caught my night time peripheral vision. We have 5 bushy perennial plants called Penstemon Dark Towers that outline a section of our patio that happen to be in full bloom now. I noticed something flying around and then I heard the low whizzing hum of its beating wings. “A hummingbird at 9 pm?”, I thought to myself. Quick, get the camera!
Hopefully he’ll come back tomorrow and provide me a better view.
