It was a gorgeous weekend around the ranch. Hot, with a slight breeze to keep it from being unbearable. Well, unless you insist on wearing fur....
The Bag Lady went out early to water her plants and check cows. She remembered her camera and took a few pictures to share with you. These are wild roses, which are the provincial flower of Alberta.
The Bag Lady was struck by the depth of colour in this petunia when the early morning sun hit it.
She still had her camera close at hand while she had a cup of coffee with the Rancher on the deck, and noticed what looked at first like a large bee. She watched it for a few seconds before identifying it as a baby hummingbird! Can you see it in this picture?
How about in this one?
It turned out to be incredibly difficult to get a good photograph of the little thing.
It is actually in this picture, too..... if you enlarge the photo, and look to the left of the pagoda, and up a little ways, you'll see a little orange blur - that might be the hummingbird. The Bag Lady is including this picture to give you some idea of how tiny the hummer is.
A little later in the day there were two of them! So tiny, and so quick.
