Poetry Friday: Summer Visitor Haiku

POETRY FRIDAYAbove is the Anna’s hummingbird which is a year round resident and a frequenter of my feeder.  But earlier in July I had a traveler appear, the Rufous hummingbird.  Much more brown in their feathers and according to All About Birds this is likely a female or immature one as they will have the green with the rust colored leaves.

18 rufous hummer

Thanks to Mary Lee who is hosting this week and has introduced a new poetic form to try out.

    Wow! That is a gorgeous photo! And I love the side eye that ends your poem.

  2. That’s a gorgeous pic of that stately yet delicate hummingbird. I like your “side eye” haiku too! Rufous hummingbirds, I’ll have to look at more of them–they’re beautiful, thanks!

    I know we have hummingbirds in this area, but I’ve actually seen very few. 😦 However, I have seen quite a few hummingbird moths, which are pretty cool! Your photo is great! And I love the “side eye”!

    I miss seeing hummingbirds in my yard. I don’t feed them anymore. Love that pic and ‘side eye’, Jone!

    Wow! Your photo is great. I’ve never been able to capture our hummingbirds. I love the detail of your summertime visitor.
