I've also seen humming birds on my scarlet runner beans and bee balm.

Lovely shot, Reid. You have a good selection of flowers - I think I recognize Russian sage, bee-balm, coneflowers - and is the yellow one Ratibida?

That is such a beautiful photo! Would love to see it in the multiplant photo space with everything ID'd! :-)

@catmint20906 thanks! Right now I can only access this site on my iPhone and there isn't a way to label them on it. I can post it it in there anyway and label them later.
