Hummingbirds trying to beat the heat

These photos weren't taken locally, but I just had to share them. My friend Pam Winegar moved across the country to California and she and husband Richard are always sharing the most wonderful photos with me. She gave me permission to share them with you.

Pam's Comments:

"We enjoyed watching a pair of hummingbirds at a cherub fountain at Filoli Gardens. The birds were dipping their bills into the fountain to wash off yellow pollen. Sometimes the hummingbirds put their whole heads underwater - it was quite a sight!"



  1. Oh my GOSH!! So funny and so very cute. What a wonderful fountain for them to cool off, wash off and enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Amazing photos… how neat! Larry

  3. WOW! What a wonderful chance to observe hummingbirds and see how they can also use a fountain. Fioli Gardens is a beautiful place to visit. Wish I had been fortunate enough to see them there when I visited the gardens a few years ago.
    Thank you

  4. What wonderful photos – thank you for sharing them.

  5. Love these photos–such beauty!!
