Two images that evoke such different feelings in me. I saw humming birds in San Francisco ..so tiny and perfect.

Gosh, those wasps look more like hornets! Nice shot of the humming bird.

The wasp closeup could provide a design for art nouveau jewelry!
Lovely photos.

Isn't nature amazing. If people weren't so scared of wasps we might more often get to see and appreciate those beautiful nest structures they create. Though, only the other day, I read of a lady who died from wasp stings after disturbing a nest - so take care!

How beautiful! All the busyness of life carrying on around us, so often unnoticed in our own frenetic days.

Do you need any other reasons for coming to live here?
Mind you, I'd not get as close to wasps as that.

I love hummingbirds. Bought a feeder just like the one in your photo. Filled it with the sweet water. Waited. No hummingbirds. Just don't know if they're around these parts.... :(
