An unexpected consequence of deer and drought

The deer ate so much this year…so quickly. One unexpected consequence—my hummingbirds really needed my feeders so much more. Last week I had taken my feeders down as the hummers seemed to have migrated, and a hummer flew around the garden looking for sustenance. There was NOTHING for him to eat. Nothing. My jewelweed was eaten, few other fall flowers hummingbirds would eat were available. Poor thing flew around for nothing. My hummers have been feeding all summer much more from feeders than normal. They needed it this year!
