Each year one of Louisiana Iris Conservation Initiative's (LICI) volunteer at the Lockport, La. boardwalk, Mike Glaspell, sends in his photos of hummingbirds on the Louisiana iris as they are in bloom. "Mike is an amateur photographer who produces professional photographer quality photos," says LICI board of directors member Gary Salathe. He reports that there are followers of the LICI Facebook page that wait patiently for the group's Facebook postings of Glaspell's photos. "We welcome and encourage him to send us as many of his photos as he can," Salathe says.

Glaspell is also a birder. He lives a short distance from the boardwalk in Lockport, so it visits it regularly, sometimes two times a day. His photos of other birds, including bald eagles that live in his area, are favorites of birder hobbyist in southeast Louisiana.

Here are some of Mike Glaspell's hummingbird photos taken at the Lockport, La. boardwalk during the iris bloom there in March and April, 2022:
