An unknown variety of caterpillar hanging out.
Our little hummingbird has been returning daily. I even had the privilege of watching him shoot up toward the sky and dive straight down, whirring and thwirping along the way. I'm definitely thinking this is an Anna's Hummingbird as many of you have suggested. Thank you so much.
Another winged visitor I'm not as thrilled about but realize this is nature.
