The Hummingbirds are back

I have been seeing a few hummingbirds over the last week or so. I put out my feeders even though we have a lot of things blooming right now.

Today I saw a lot of them and they were in the jasmine. There must be 30 – 40 flying in and out of the jasmine. I love the sound of the flying by, the noises they make and watching them get into little spats with each other.

For all these pictures I used my 400mm lens. I spent over an hour watching the hummers and taking their pictures. These are the five pictures I liked the best.

Hummers are fast, they are quite beautiful and most of all they are tiny and a challenge to photograph.

Enjoying nature is part of my life I am inspired by the beauty and simplicity and grateful it is there for me to enjoy.

  1. Love these! I hear they are almost here too…time to put up the feeder, because up here there is NOT a lot for them to eat or drink, not yet anyway. Still cold (37 today, going for a high of 45!) and today it’s rainy and cold and miserable. Guess I should go make that food now.
