We have about four hummingbirds around this feeder, and not only do they battle the wasps, but they chase each other away as well. It is a very active place. Stand off...but the wasp got to it first. The hummingbirds will always let the wasps do what they wish.
The female finally able to have a drink.

Even though it was a beautiful afternoon, he was still getting hot in the sun. So we settled under the spruce tree and he promptly found a peanut that a chipmunk had dropped in the grass.
The peanuts flew out and he was left with the shell.

We had a great parking spot with a nice shady spot where we could watch the show.
We had hot weather for the first time all summer. We went for a walk nonetheless.
In the back field with the gang.
With Gabi and LuAnne
Paula and Rui going for a test drive.
We were delighted to meet Rui, Paula, Henrique and Isabella. A lovely family who we hope to see again one day. Visit their blog to view the photos of their trip. They spent 10 days with friends in the Toronto area before coming here...I was envious, they had such a great time. I just got a note from Rui, they have just arrived back home and no doubt have plenty of stories to share with their friends.

A run was a welcome relief...
Along with a bonus hug...it was a great reward.
