Michaeleen Gallagher captured this image of two nestling hummingbirds at the Sunnyland Gardens in Rancho Mirage. The garden is a 9-acre, arid yet colorful landscape on the grounds of the Annenberg Retreat by Sunnylands.
It’s a peaceful sanctuary often used as a backdrop for meetings among national and global political leaders, most recently by President Obama and King Abdullah II of Jordan in February.
Perhaps these baby birds are patiently awaiting the next celebrity sighting.
