BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is ONLY open certain, very limited, dates/times, starting july 20, and ending sept 15, and ONLY by specific private appointment, at particular, available "slot" times posted at this blog. No visits of any type without a confirmed appointment (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu)

Brookgreen and Caypso Gardens
It's too wet and gray to film today, so here's a very recent photo, taken by Bridgette Kistinger, at one of my favorite gardens, Brookgreen, near Myrtle Beach, S.C. It shows a male hummingbird feeding Salvia guaranitica. It's followed by 2 photos from my trip with Claire to Brookgreen in 2012. And then I show 3 clips shot just before we left Calypso (another favorite garden of mine, literally). These features various frangipani blooms (red, pink and yellow, a.k.a plumeria, which were coming into full flower as we left.
