Cute Little Hummingbirds
I love hummingbirds, who doesn’t? They are so much fun to watch, and hanging a feeder on the window of the RV is a great way to do this. We get a birds eye view from inside the window, every time they come to eat. Plus, getting photos of them is a little bit easier, but these cute little hummingbirds are fast!
This is an Annas hummingbird. We have had these guys visit us here before when I put a feeder out. Mostly we see the male, but occasionally the female will come around. We thought there was only one male, but the other day I saw two together in one of the trees. Then yesterday morning when I was outside practicing yoga, the two males were chasing each other all over the place. So much fun to watch.
I love their tiny little feet.
I had to refill the feeder the other morning, and when I went to rehang it a hummer came and had a drink while it was still in my hand. That was awesome, and I could feel the fluttering from his tiny wings.
We have trees and bushes around, and if you watch the hummers fly away, you can sometimes see where they land. I grabbed my big lens the other day to see if I could get any shots of them in the trees. These shots are pretty far away, but it was so much fun just watching them.
The color on their heads is different depending on the light.
They just sit on the branches and sing. Apparently, this is one of only a few hummers that vocalize.
This shot is not even close to in focus, but I thought it was interesting anyway. See the trail he is leaving behind him?
We have to leave our favorite desert home today and head to the Phoenix area for an art show this weekend. It has been pure bliss being out and way from the people and the city. I’m not sure were we will end up after the show. We thought about the Sedona area but it’s supposed to be cold up there, so I don’t think that will work. We have 3 weeks in between shows, so we need to hang out somewhere.
I hope my little hummers find another feeder somewhere, although I did read that they eat bugs too, which I found really interesting. It’s been fun having them around.
