Idaho - That's pretty cool sounding! Thanks for sharing.
Mick - what hummingbirds are in your area? Are they in your yard? Many of these pictures were taken through windows of my house! Try it!
Larry & Lana - thanks much! I appreciate your comments!


Great shots, hon!

Beautiful shots of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds Nancy. They are indeed angels and jewels of the sky. I think the shot from the back with the tail spread is my favorite.


Lovely photos. That's a bird I'd really like to be able to watch and photograph.


I've been reading the Fablehaven books with my kids. In these books, people that have not yet had their eyes opened to the magical world see beautiful hummingbirds, which are in fact beautiful fairies in disguise.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
