Yes, I have more hummingbird photos...


I'm sorry, I'm completely addicted to taking hummingbird photos.
They'll be gone soon and I will miss them so much.
Even though they fight each other.
Even though they fight the other birds!
Even though they have been terrorizing the butterflies.
I love my little hummies.


Seems like I mostly have young males here now.
They have dark spots under their neck that will turn ruby red.








This little guy was preening himself after the hurricane passed.
Doesn't he look funny all puffed out?


And my little Zoe had her first day of kindergarten today.
Soon everyone will be growing up and leaving the nest.

You captured great shots of those hummers. We don't get many at our house, but a few will visit our feeder regularly. I will miss them too.

Zoe looks dressed to impress on her first day of Kindergarten. Very cute.

I can't believe your photos! They are GREAT!

I never have my camera ready for the little guys--but I don't think my lens is good enough to capture them like you do.

Such nosey little guys, aren't they? Mine come right up to me and stare me down!

...you can never have too many hummingbird photos! I love them all. Ours have been going crazy...eating so much to get ready for their big flight.
