One of my favorite signs of summer is seeing the little hummingbirds show up at our feeders.
I know there are many different kinds, but we only have the little green ruby-throated hummingbirds here in Northwest Arkansas. I love hearing their little hmmmmm and seeing them dart in for drinks.
Our particular little guys are an opinionated bunch. We have four feeders... all just alike... all hanging in a row on the back porch... all containing the exact same nectar water stuff... And, do they visit them all equally? No, they do not. They like the third one. What's up with that? Oh, they visit the other three, but the third one is always the cool hangout spot. It's like the restaurant with Coke while the other three have Pepsi.
I did this painting for this month's Inspiration Collaboration submission. Signs of Summer was my response to Sara's photograph Signs of Spring.
