Pictured above an iridescent green hummingbird casing this lavender bush.  He is analyzing which of these blooms will yield the most nectar.

And there it is! It is well worth hovering and feasting on that delicious flavor!

 

I hear like you see — like that hummingbird outside that window for instance.”

– Ray Charles

 

I always loved those little creatures [hummingbird], always feel blessed when they appear nearby. There’s a magical quality to them. I finally put one in a song.”

- Leonard Cohen

 

Happy Friday!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® This was such a lucky shot, thanks to Ron who was investigating something in the shopping center.  I just had taken a photo, so had my camera/phone in hand.  A

Nina Hollander, Broker It was a perfect color combination, and I love those creatures.  They whiz in and out of our garden consistently.  This year there were three nests of hummers around us.  A

Michael Jacobs that background is white, but on an overcast day it gets muted.  And at the speed they move, it does cause that transparent look.  A

We can't use feeders because they also attract bears. So no feeders - they just come and munch on our flowers. I don't know if they leave in the winter - they are still here at the moment!

I have tried several times to successfully photograph a hummingbird.  They are either too quick of flight, or I'm slower than molasses!

Myrl Jeffcoat you are not slow as molasses.  I lucked out as I had my phone in hand, and I just stood there shooting one after the other and magnifying the shot.  Sheer luck. A

GReat capture of that hummingbird, Ron and Alexandra. Looks like an Anna's Hummer to me. What a great place to dine - I bet it tried many of the flowers.

Jeff Dowler, CRS I agree, we have many who visit our yard and the neighbors.  We had three nests in close proximity...They are the sweetes tiniest nests, and the parents are fierce defenders.  A

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel I love hummingbirds.  I have a few feeders in my backyard and grow Cardinal Climber vines for them too.  Here's a couple of "my" humming birds.
