Hummingbird Heartbeat

I always keep one hummingbird feeder out during the warm months even though the most of 'em I've ever seen around here was maybe two.  But for some reason, this year has been a boom for us.  We were getting six, seven or I fished out another rarely used feeder and filled it up. 

This one I hung from the end of the rafter tails right in front of the kitchen windows so we enjoy a show every day now.  Jack even cleaned the windows and took one of the screens off so I could attempt to get a few photos.

These are not great but they are somewhat passable anyway.  I'm still learning this fancy camera too.  Maybe I can get it all figured out one day.

So, I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love those little guys and gals. I need to clean an fill my feeders now that I managed to clean up the porch today. Early mornings are pretty nice until maybe 8 am then its time to hide in the house with the a/c full blast. Sitting in front of a window for hours in the Mountains is how I managed to get some really good shots. Have fun and enjoy

We have had few hummers this year, Annie, but I saw one at work for the first time last week. I thought they would have all left the area by now, but guess not. Your photos are great - perched and humming ...
Nice to hear from you again!
