More stories and photos like the hummingbird feature, please

Thank you, Mike Benbow for the recent hummingbird photos and article (“How to turn your summer garden into a hummingbird haven,” The Herald, July 17). I’ve followed your work for many years and am always excited to see your birding and fishing pieces with your great photography. I wish they could be more frequent.

It’s articles like yours with local interest and information about the outdoors that encourage me to keep my subscription to The Herald. I’d like to see the return of a weekly column like the one Wayne Krause did with local fishing, crabbing and hunting news to keep up on the seasons, openings and rules. Thanks again, Mike. I look forward to your next article.
