The last two days have been really hot
here in my California desert home.
This little guy came to rest
in the shade of my front door alcove.
We startled each other when I opened the door
to water the potted plants in the courtyard.
He soon came back.
He was panting so badly that I felt sorry for him.
So I put out a tiny little hummingbird feeder.
I didn't get a picture of him eating...
