I had another opportunity to photograph the Ruby-throated Hummingbird in my backyard, this time enjoying Royal Catchfly (Silene regia). As I mentioned in my last post on this fascinating species (Ruby-throated Hummingbird on Bee Balm), these hummingbirds favor red tubular flowers most of all. Royal Catchfly, a native of Missouri, is an excellent candidate here.
Photographs taken July 21, 2013 in Waukesha County, WI.
