Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-100I planted lots of Red Bee Balm several years ago in my flower garden simply because I liked the red flowers. I like the fragrance, the red color and how the flower reminds me of a bad hair day!

I had no idea that hummingbirds are attracted to the color red! These flowers seem to be a magnet for Hummingbirds. They come back every year to feed at these bright red flowers. Catching them in flight with a long lens is quite a challenge but they keep providing me with ample opportunities and I keep trying.
