With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: hummingbirds

Tuesday, August 31, 2010


More hummers!
I just can't resist.
I am fascinated.
There is no cure.
This August has been a month of abundant hummingbird activity at our feeders. And they seem a much friendlier group as well.  Not wary by our movements and even playful as they zoom right up to me, look directly in my face and then off to the feeder.
The time is approaching when my diminutive feathered friends will be heading south and my feeders will be left quite.
Until then, I will allow my heart to be thrilled by each fleeting visit.

Great photos! I recently got my feeders out from our move and made them some food, we have a couple (as in together) that zip around the front yard to the back. I love them too.

I love your photos. These little fellas are such fun to watch.

We've never been blessed with hummingbirds, for some reason. Yours are just adorable!

Love it!
They are so fun. My MIL next door has a hummingbird feeder. We love to sit on her back porch and enjoy their antics.

Oh my gosh....these photos just take my breath away! I so love bird watching. And I have several hummingbird feeders that are out now and ready to get 'em cleaned up for the migratory season coming soon.

Oh...and, heck...with your profile photo, you hav a LONG way before you catch up with MY 'whitish blond'. LOL

Your photography is amazing!!! I went yesterday and bought a feeder because I keep seeing one outside the window where I sit at the computer!!! Can't wait to get it hung so I can watch him/her feed!!!

Elaine said...

Oh don't you just love these sweet little birds..They are a mystery to me and I love watching them.

I came from southern daydreamers blog and liked yours so I signed to follow yours along with your other friends. I hope you will stop by one of my blogs and say hello.
May sunshine and laughter follow you through your day

Amazing that you still have hummers! Ours left weeks ago! Maybe I just wasn't as attentive to the feeders as I should have been and they gave up on me! :~{
Your photos are spectacular! What sweet little subjects to capture on film!

Simple wonders of nature.
Its fascinating to observe these birds.

I'm sure glad you are fascinated! I am, too! Wonderful images! What fun for you!

Linda said...

Those are great photos...we have them here all year long, but I never can seem to get a good shot. Your photos are wonderful!!

Ann said...

Fantastic shots. How entertaining they are to watch. I didn't have much luck attracting them this year, Maybe next year will be better.

Cassandra said...

What beautiful photographs! I LOVE hummers, also - I have seen SO many of the ruby-throated variety at our feeders this summer at both our Maryland home and at our upstate New York farm, 500 miles north! I make my own recipe for our feeders: 1/4 cup white granulated sugar to 1 cup of hot water - they love it! So happy you will be trying my Maryland Crabcake recipe - it is the BEST! Enjoy! Cassandra ♥

Oh Wow! Such wonderful photos. It's like they're posing for you!!

Wonderful the way you were able to capture them on your camera! We have feeders too and they all seem to wrestle over who gets which feeder. I think they're just playing, but I just keep adding feeders so that there's enough for them all -- it doesn't seem to matter though. They always want the same one. And they are such free spirits, aren't they?
