Hummingbirds are attracted to wild columbine. They are attracted to its red flowers and feed on its nectar. The shape of the flowers seems perfectly designed for the hummingbirds' needle-like beak. Columbines readily seed themselves and new plants keep popping up each year. In a Native American tradition, the crushed seeds are rubbed on the hands of the menfolk as a love charm.

Welcome to TN. Your first picture is very pleasant and well composed. May be the sharpness could be a tiny better.
It's always useful to have some more informations on the subject you show, no need to paste pages of Wikipedia, but just some informations or personal ideas.
Thanks and kind regards
La publication semble manquer d'un petit peu de netteté mais c'est admirablement et artistiquement composée sous une belle lumière qui fait resplendir les couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
