Stunning red on green, nice touch. What an unusual looking plant at the bottom left (shrimp plant).

Nice photos.

I love the hummingbird. You got me smiling.

Nice bird and nice photography.

Ralph said...

These are all lovely reds! The desert flowers of beauty, but the bill on the hummingbird is great, it has great length yet it is so delicate. Perfect avian ruby!

I bet the Tucson Botanical Garden is wonderful! I've been to a desert garden in Phoenix but I'm sure Tucson is slightly different...or maybe a LOT different, I'm not sure.

The Baja Fairy Duster flower looks like a hanging light. The Broad-billed hummingbird looks amusing. Nice captures.

Great Pics, I agree with others, love the hummingbird photo.

Prospero said...

It amazes me how many of the same plants can be grown in Arizona as can be grown in Bermuda. All the plants you mentioned are commonly found on the island.

I have been wanting to know the name of that last red, pyracantha! Now I know what's it called -yay! Thanks Diane!

Beautiful capture, by the way.

moosh said...

Great shots. How did you get the hummingbird to sit still? HRT

Carol said...

Great series of shots, and the photo collage is also beautiful. Marvelous light and composition. You've captured a stunning shot of the hummingbird with the back light, his feathers show off and the moisture on his bill so delicate.

Ebie said...

Lots of reds! I always call the last one, berries, now I know.

I've seen the fairy duster once only in one of the gardens we visited last year.

Love to eat pomegranate, its delicious.
