Photos from a memorable few hours at San Antonio Botanical Gardens in central San Antonio, Bexar county, Texas on February 03, 2013:

This 2CY male Allen's Hummingbird started the ball rolling about a week previously, and was the reason birders started to visit the location in increasing numbers:

A few days later this 2CY male Calliope Hummingbird was found visiting some flowers in a different location within the Gardens:

At lunch today on the Gardens Restaurant patio we spotted this Selasphorus that seems to be an 2CY/adult female Rufous Hummingbird:

- and then as we gathered to chat and admire the Allen's one more time this afternoon, a 2CY male Black-chinned Hummingbird appeared at the feeder:

While wandering around the main pond in the woods, in-between hummingbird sightings, we found this Hammond's Flycatcher feeding low by some benches:

- and finally, as we moved from the flycatcher back to the Calliope, Sheridan spotted this very rare Mexican Silverspot butterfly on bushes close to the pond:

A fine day, I'd say!
