More To Come.......
I'm just astounded at how MANY hummers you have! I would imagine it feels a little bit like Heaven in your yard! I get SO excited when I see my ONE - and the other day I did actually see TWO - one chasing the other! I was wondering if it is mating season for them.... They really are just the sweetest little birds!
Amazing shots Naomi....how long did you stay there just so captured all these ...thank you for sharing :D
I love the gold sunny scene and I've never seen a hummingbird that color. Must be California style. Have you ever seen them interact with other birds? They can be quite aggressive for such little birds. I always do a double take when I see one, thinking maybe it's a big hornet!
I love how the coral color of the underside of the hummingbird's tail matches the flowers in the photo below. These are fantastic, Naomi!!
I so love the hummingbirds. They bring so much joy to a garden and your home. Your photos are fascinating, watching them in action with the agave. I bet you could sit for hours watching them play and feed!
Naomi I'm glad you told7e us from what vantage point you took them. It all helps to create a picture. I saw some - drinking sugar water outside a diner in Canada but I can't remember what noise they made. Do they hum?
Amazing pictures, Naomi! Looks the hummingbirds love your garden!
Have a nice week!
beautiful! but whisper to them I would love to see some of them in this area too :)
Hey! I recognize those hummingbirds!!!
Jason and I are at our parents' house. We arrived yesterday afternoon and had dinner with some dear friends that I haven't seen in over two years. We are enjoying a lazy day here with mom and dad before we fly to Little Rock tomorrow and begin our driving vacation on Wed. I will be back home and finished with my travels on Aug 8th.
Great shots! It is hard to imagine them flying around with the photos you took! They look so still so well done.
It amazes me how well you capture these wonderful birds and with their wings fluttering away! You certainly have a gift for photography.
I'm enjoying them a lot, so thanks for sharing. How fortunate that you have such a show right in your own back yard. Literally.
These are fantastic shots! I love the one where his wings are going a mile a min.
What a sight to wake up to. If I lived in the hills, I'd pour myself a cup of coffee and enjoy the view.
Naomi, your love of nature is just contagious! I've learned more about orchids, agave plants, and hummingbirds than I ever knew. I love your blog...
Hi dear Naomi! Thanks so much for left many nice comments on my blogs! Many hugs!
Great shots! I love hummingbirds! When we were at the in-laws, there were about six hummers zipping around the feeder, but I never had my camera when they were all together! I wanted so bad to get a picture of all of them together! Isn't nature wonderful!
Hope you are doing well! Thanks for dropping by, I have not been a good blogger of late, with this move looming ahead. So much to do!
Lots of hugs!!
Hi Naomi! What a luxury to be sitting on your deck and enjoying the hummingbirds at meals and taking great action shots -- alternating the wing movements and clasped ones!
You must have a wonderful garden to attract so many. Envious indeed. Have a good day.
The hummingbirds were definitely dancing !
Happy healthy Monday to you, Naomi !
You have amazing camera skills...what great pictures of the hummingbirds in action...
How beautiful they are. Great pics you are getting of them. Love Hugs and Blessings
Naomi these photos are fantastic! you definitely captured moments of magic. I just love hummingbirds and although we have a standard feeder we don't get many of them. I would definitely be watching with wonder as you are...and taking photo after photo...as you are. I am SO happy you are sharing the experience.
These tiny birds must be breathtaking to see for real but your photo's of them are wonderful! How marvellous to be able to watch these little birds go about their business every day. We don't have hummingbirds in teh UK at all adn I have never seen one in real life but I am endlessly fascinated by them.
I especailly love the first picture with the stil wings and the one where they are a circular blur. Such a sense of the speed that they fly at and the 'figure 8' motion that birds wings make! I am looking forward to seeing more! :)
Great pictures Naomi! I love the hummingbirds. When they are close to you the sound of their wings is amazing, they go so fast! They certainly are a wonderful little gift from God! I know they love your flowers!! And having that water feature in your garden too! You are a friend to nature!!! They probably tell each other, "Oh go to HER house there, she has the most delightful flowers and water too!!!"
I always find some peace and quite here I love it!!!
I can't believe how many of the little blighters you have buzzing around.
Sigh makes me homesick for my home away from home lol.
BTW I get a gold star I have done three posts on my blog in the past week,go me lol.
Oh, those shots are great! I love to watch hummingbirds, they are such a site.
Here via Wendy's tonight!
The red head... and the green ones... I'm trying to remember if they're two different special... I know the female emerald is kinda brown... so I'm thinking in these two posts you've captured 2 different kinds of males hummingbirds (and some females)?
