Unknown red fruit, but I think these may be rose hips based on some help. and also unknown yellow lichen
We wondered why with all the birds about, that these red berries remain uneaten. They must be unpalatable to most of the birds?

Anna's hummingbird (Calypte anna) perched on the top of our fig tree in our back garden. We have hummers all summer, they are attracted to many of the plants in or garden and seem quite adapted to people. We often see them as we have dinner on our back deck. It was fun to capture this one still, I caught it from on of our windows. The fig tree tip is about 6 meters above ground level.
