Hummer cam current view -
The forecast for the next couple days includes a chance of rain from the monsoonal flow expanding over from Arizona. High temps should drop from 90s to 80s but humidity is on the rise so the net effect will be that it feels a bit warmer. Not like GG or Ylee are feeling, but a little sticky. Tonight's sky -
A few of the local natives in bloom -
chilopsis (desert willow) with white bloom)
more common purple/pink -
Gray globemallow -
black sage -
tecoma stans -
We have had a couple visitors lately -
I've seen hummers smaller than this guy! I like his orange antennae :) Sometimes they curl up tight. He's a Pepsis formosa - tarantula hawk wasp, I've never seen tarantulas around here - hmmm.. guess he is doing his job!
This guy was actually outside my window at work in San Marcos (about 12 miles west from home). I catch a certain resemblance to someone posting a cool batch of windows to the world :)
