My husband and photographer, Douglas Kerr, sat on our couch in the living room and shot pictures of local hummingbirds feeding and flying around our patio. We have each experienced them flying about our heads as we filled the bird bath or did other chores on the patio. One day when I went out the patio door, I spied a hummer sitting on the bird feeder with his head down, sound asleep. Guess he got too full to fly. Unfortunately, he heard me and flew away before a camera could be located.
|This hummer appears to really be enjoying the nectar|
|We weren't sure, but we suspected this was a mating ritual|
|What an amazing little creature|
|We aren't sure what type of hummers these are, but they have tan, black and white tail feathers|
|Here is an even better display of the tail feathers|
|At times they do seem to look like little angels|
|Coming in for a snack|
|His siphon is almost as long as he is|
|Almost like filling up a gasoline tank in a reverse manner|
Thanks, Doug, for the wonderful photos.
This is all I have to say for now.
