From last summer about this time, I think she is a wonderful welcome to July!
A female rubythroat peruses purple irises. There was plenty of red and pink in a friend’s garden, but I guess she decided to try a different flavor.
This shot could have been steadier if I’d been using my tripod, or change the shutter speed and other manual settings, but it was all I could do to grab my camera in time, zoom in and let my camera autofocus. Still, having a stucco wall behind to add light and define the subject helped to hold the focus in one spot.
