Happy Humming

Some people hum when they are happy (like my Dad when he is sneaking snacks from the kitchen!) – and I am happy around wings that hum – like hummingbirds and hummingbird moths.

While I was out taking pictures in the front yard the other day, this lovely hummingbird dropped by for a visit…

…as did this hummingbird moth.

These are such cool creatures, and great fun to photograph. 🙂

    Fantastic photographs, Kathy. Two of my favourite creatures – the hummingbird and its mothy namesake.

    Hummingbirds always strike me as little miracles and your pictures seem miraculous too.
