Hummingbird Envy

I spent yesterday afternoon with my folks and came down with a severe case of Hummingbird envy!

These glowing green birds were dipping and darting all over their backyard.  I was hoping to get a picture of one sipping from a Trumpet Vine, but that area seemed to be an arena for all out aerial attacks!

Instead, I snapped a few photos of this fellow…


…who was content to steal some nectar from the feeder while the others around him were busy fighting.  Not quite as pretty as having him perched on a flower, but it will have to do!

    They all give me hummingbird envy. I’ve not seen hide nor hair of a single one this year.

  2. I could watch them for hours! We have a lot in our yard and they can get quite aggressive. Funny when they chase robins and other bigger birds but then have to fend off the bees!

  3. Spare a thought for someone who has never seen one in the wild….not Ever! The hummingbird is my all time favourite bird and one day I will go on a bird holiday overseas and experience this creature in the wild. Kathy that photo is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I have many on my feeder too, but I agree, a photo on a flower is so much prettier. You got a GREAT shot though. 🙂 They are so sweet!!!

  6. Omg Kathy. What a wonderful shot! Love it! The cool angle of the body there, just invites an abstract interpretation 😉

  7. A beautiful little hummer! Great photo!
