I have been watching the hummingbirds who are tanking up for their long trip down south. They are busily flitting from one feeder to another. We have five feeders out there for them to feast upon. There are so many of them. But for some reason they do not like to share while feeding. They are constantly fighting one another for first dibs on the feeders.
Here are some photos I managed to snap of them in action. They are incredible little creatures. I’m sure you will agree if you have ever seen them in action.
If you would like to learn more about the glorious hummingbirds here is a link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hummingbird.
They really are incredible little birds. The ones I photographed are emerald in color while others are black and white with a little green on their heads. We also have some with ruby throats that are beautiful. As they fly around their colors catch the light and glisten as if wet. They are iridescent.
I tried to zoom in as close as I could on these but they do get quite nervous and have excellent vision. They take one look at me and fly away. Sigh! We have one window feeder above on the left where this little guy watched me as I watched him. He was one of the braver and less skittish ones.
Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Check out all my posts on hummingbirds by searching. I do one every year at the time they arrive to the time they leave (so sad). It is a joyous occasion when we spot the first one of each season and sad time to see them go. But go they must or they wouldn’t survive in our winter. I hope you have seen them wherever you live at one time or another.
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
