The hummingbirds are still here! On Tuesday, for some reason, they were standing guard at the feeders again. I stayed outside for hours and took about eight hundred, (yes, I said 800), pictures of the hummingbirds!
I was able to get so close that I could have reached out and touched the one that was in the backyard!
These are some of my favorite shots!
This one makes my heart sing! It looks like a painting to me!
Standing guard and preparing to chase away the approaching hummingbird!
Doesn't he look menacing?
I stayed on the patio for probably four hours taking pictures and enjoyed being so close to them!
What a thrill to stand so close and watch their antics! They have so much personality!
This one was so calm and laid back that I thought I would take the opportunity to try some backdrops just for fun!
I had an easel that I covered with cloth and placed behind my container of sticks that I had near the hummingbird feeder.
It was starting to get dark by the time I thought of the backdrops. I've tried a few more times since Tuesday to get more backdrop pictures but the hummingbirds have not been cooperative. I guess Tuesday was just a sweet blessing and I shouldn't expect the hummers to always be such cooperative models!
