Shortly after posting that excellent picture of Anna’s Hummingbird yesterday, I came across these pictures which if not mistaken were taken on our trip to Monteray bay in California 8 years ago.

That was a memorable trip which included visiting the most northerly wintering site for Monarch butterflies.
