I camped out under the trumpet vine in my back yard this evening and finally saw a hummer... Not the best photo ever, but I am happy to see them around again. It has been a while since I have had any activity.

It must be a day for hummers. My picture isn't as clear as yours, but I was surprised to find an immature Rufous Hummingbird in my yard this morning.

A more artistic view of another hummer caught visiting the trumpet vine last night.
