Today’s Thursday Picture was taken at Santa Teresa County Park in San Jose’s Almaden Valley.
This Calypte Anna (Anna’s Hummingbird) perched on spent wildflower right as I started hiking up the steep switch backs of the Stile Ranch Trail. As I switched lenses…this scrappy guy kept shifting on his perch…
I think he must have been protecting his territory…
Stand still will you buddy!
Santa Teresa County Park is one of my favorite places to hike in the winter and spring. There are many birds and wildflowers, rolling green hills, and interesting vistas not far at all from busy San Jose/Silicon Valley.
So, where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
