The summer heat is waning a little bit here in Atlanta. I can wake up in the early morning and enjoy some temps in the mid-seventies before we wind up at a full heat blast in the afternoon. The slightly cooler temps have brought the smallest of local birds to my yard. These are all ruby-throated hummingbirds. There are four in my yard, and they’re all very feisty. They spend their day guzzling sugar water and then dive bombing each other. It’s great.
They are one of the small joys in my day. A blip in my periphery that brings an outsized amount of joy for what little time and space they take up. :)
