Beauty & the Firebush


This is the same tiny beauty that I posted on my blog a couple of days ago- 
the fiery Firebush Queen who vigorously defends her favorite blooms.  

I've taken a gazillion photos of her.  How could I help myself?
All of this beauty to behold, right before my eyes.
I've included a video of her at the end of this post- I hope you enjoy :)
