This summer,the bugs of all kinds invaded my tiger lilies. I was lucky that I did get to enjoy the blooms before these little guys decided to attack. Thought we would never get rid of the aphids,spider mites, and whatever else was latched on under the leaves of the lilies. This curious little hummer would check out the bugs, but would not eat them.A smart bird no doubt.
Lightbox for best viewing.
