This monarch butterfly is enjoying the nectar from this fragrant flowering Abelia bush.  The bush attracts many bees, butterflies, hummingbirds each year when it is blooming from June through October. The flowers on this bush are so wonderfully fragrant, the scent wafts through our windows so that we may enjoy the scent indoors as well as while we're in the yard. 

And, below in a photo is a baby hummingbird enjoying a meal from this same Abelia.  Our cell phone camera was not able to capture the image as clearly as we would have liked so we shall try again and update the image when we see this little guy again.

I love Monarch butterflies and its colorful wings that capture my eyes. Hummingbirds are considered the smallest birds in the world. I've never seen a hummingbird in actual, but by just seeing it on picture makes me want to have one. And speaking of birds, my brother has a pigeon and he loves to take care of it. Being a bird lover, I'm sure he's going to be interested with hummingbirds as well.

Hummingbirds are so rare in a wild nature. They need a special feeding.

Quite an impressive post you have shared here about Butterflies and baby hummingbirds. I also loved the pictures you have shared along the post, loved the way they are captured.
