Hummingbird Feeder

Posted by Hello

We hung a hummingbird feeder in our yard late Friday afternoon. The hummingbirds showed up within ten minutes, and literally have been stopping by every few minutes for a sip of the nectar. They are the most photogenic little creatures, but our camera does not have a remotely activated shutter, so I have become a human biped tripod to get these shots. It would be great to have more light on them so you can see their iridescent reds and greens, but for now, here are their elegant silhouettes.

Also, if you have not see it yet, check out this link from Living the Scientific Life, which has the most incredible photographs of hummingbirds from egg to fledgling. It is well worth the trip over.
