Pollinators Calendar

This pollinators calendar is our most recent addition to our nature calendars collection at Purplebearspics our Zazzle store. The calendar is made up of photographs of bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

Most of these photographs are taken in our garden or on our walks in the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge. We have other products at our Zazzle store relating to pollinators, such as other calendars, garden flags, home decor, jigsaw puzzles, mouse pads, mugs, ornaments, photographs, postcards and other products.

Ruby-throated hummingbird feeding on Jewelweed photo

This ruby-throated hummingbird feeding on Jewelweed photo is one of our first hummingbird photos taken in the wild, not in our garden. This photo was taken at a local wildlife refuge and it seems that the Jewelweed is one of their favorite food sources in this area. There are plenty of flowers in the refuge but most if not all of our sitings are on the Jewelweed.

We have been taking pictures for years of the hummingbirds feeding on the potted plants on our deck and the flowers in our garden. If you are interested, you can see some of those pictures on our hummingbird blog Taking hummingbird pictures in the wild just adds a new challenge to our photography.
