Hummingbirds Galore!

Darting around the yardIt started with two males and one female. ( I think)  From below They drove off any “intruder” from the feeders and only allowed each other to take a sip from time to time.   But now….things are slightly more chaotic.

 

The feeders have been buzzing and “sharing” the flowers with up to three other birds.   They dart and fly around like a swarm of bees.

Finally I get him to stand still!

 

 

For the past several days now, I have been angling out on this side of the window trying to capture one or more of them up close.   I snap lots of burry pics…My favorite!  I call it: "landing gear!"

 

 

But every now and then, I get one that is blog worthy.

I can’t help that I find Hummers fascinating.   I guess the little kid never dies in some of us. 

 

 

Another one comes in

 

I would love to get one to land on my hand. I finally capture the wing instead of a blur I actually held a hummingbird ( a live one, that is.) once.   It was trapped in my parents kitchen and I caught and released it.   they are very small!    I have held moths that seemed larger! 

 

 

 

An extreme close up...too bad it is through the dirty windowJust thought I would post the pics time for dust off! before I turn in for the night.   Hope everyone is having a great weeks so far.   Enjoy!

I am not fast enough to get to the window and shoot. I finally do have some coming in the evening but they spook with any movement around them.
