I’ve compiled a medley of images this morning of bees, moths and hummingbirds that I have photographed this past week to share this morning. The blooming Rocky Mountain Bee Plants have brought in a variety on creatures for me to photograph. I’m not going to write much about them instead I will let the photos speak for themselves.
This little Rufous came in close and scratched, I love all the little details in the plumage.
This one was busy going from flower to flower feeding.
This Nevada Bumble Bee caught my attention when there weren’t any hummingbirds around.
This Black-chinned Hummingbird came in close and stuck its tongue out. Look at all the pollen on its bill!
And this one’s wings hummed close to the Rocky Mountain Bee Plant.
Early in the morning the White-lined Sphinx Moths are busy zipping around sipping nectar too.
The blooming plants are food for these beautiful creatures and I very much enjoy feeling a part of it all.
Side note, someone removed a single Rocky Mountain Bee Plant that was all by itself in a patch of cheat grass, I don’t know why they removed it but it wasn’t cool to do that. If it was removed so they could get seeds to plant at home that was messed up. The seeds hadn’t formed yet and it is against the law to remove them from Antelope Island. Just not smart at all.
Whoever you are you took food away from the bees, moths and birds that they NEED. In my opinion that was selfish and thoughtless.
