A hummingbird story
Typist today – MaryI have a small hummingbird feeder I like to put out when we get to a new spot. It’s always amazing to me how those little birds can find a feeder in the middle of nowhere. So when we got here a couple weeks ago, I filled and hung the feeder in one of our trees. That very day, we had a hummingbird. How he found us, i’m not sure, but I was glad he showed up. Pretty soon there were two little hummers, and the larger one kept chasing the little one off. Poor guy, all he wanted was a drink too. I cropped the above picture closer, so we could see the detail better. We were going to leave a week ago, so I brought the feeder in the house. That evening the hummingbird flew circles around the branch, and sat on it. He was obviously looking for the food. The next day we decided to stay here and then run down to Blogpaws in a couple of days. I put the feeder back out, and he was pretty happy. I was sitting outside the other day watching him fly around. He would come in and eat, then fly to the top of a tree. With my new zoom lens, I was able to get some cool photos. Then he came into the shade of the bush and relaxed a little. This picture is of him scratching. It’s kind of hard to tell, they move pretty damn fast. You can see his little foot on the right though. We went to our friends house just down the road one evening. He has a feeder that attracts a lot of hummingbirds. It was so fun to watch them, I have never seen so many hummingbirds in one spot. It’s so nice to take a minute and observe these amazing little birds.
