    I was at my moms and seen the most beautiful hummingbird.
    It was getting dark but decided I would try and get a picture of the hummingbird. This isn't the hummer I was trying for but I had my flash on and this is what the picture turned out like.
    I couldn't believe nothing showed up from the background.
    Enjoy

    How cool is that? Isn't it fun when a picture turns out so unexpectedly like that. Great shots of the hummer. I too love watching them.

    Yeah I don't get many hummers where I live. My mom has 3 feeders that she has fill every other day. Last year we were sitting out where they are and 1 landed on my head. Sat there for quite awhile. I love them. They are so cute. I could sit there all day and watch them. :thumbup:

    Kim these are super cool pics. Love those hummers. I have been watching the Sportman's Paradise site where there is a hummer called 'Phoebe', she makes a nest, lays eggs, they hatch and then fledge. There is one little one in the next now called 'Scout'. I have watched her build 5 nests and it is amazing the things you learn about hummers. They use spider webs to keep their nests(golf ball size)together. Their eggs are the size of a jelly bean/tic-tac.

    Oh I'm going to have to look up the Sportsman site and watch. They are amazing little creatures.
    I thought about asking Birds and Bloom if they would want a picture. I think I'll do that later. I'm going to frame the first picture. 1 for me and 1 for my mom.
    Glad you all like the pictures. :thumbup:

    Great pictures! Their wings move so fast, it's hard to get a shot of them not moving! Thanks for sharing them!

    I love to watch these little guys. We get them around the flowers on the porch. The other day there was a baby, no bigger than a quarter. My dad got it on video, it was so cute.

    That would be a great video to see. I bet he was a cutie.
    Even though I don't see to many of them around here I might try my feeder again and see what happens. I've saved to many birds around here from neighbor cats but I'm sure cats can't catch them little guys. :thumbup:
