The plant is Mexican sage, according to Bob. Can anyone I.D. the hummer?
I saw picture on web site of a California photographer whose work I occasionally paint (he likes my work so he encourages me to paint his photos).
I’ve been painting for 17 years (after I retired) and I’ve lived in Waldwick for almost 45 years. I’m also an actor and spent my entire professional career in the public sector (28 yrs at The Port Authority ) and was a Waldwick councilman after I retired in 2000.
Bob's website is here. How about a painted Bunting, Bob?
