Photo Essay

hummingbird day

lookin' up 1

on saturday i watched 4 humming birds zip and zoom right outside my patio doors. they seemed to be playing a game. one would light on a branch or the feeder, then look right, left up and down. then suddenly 1, 2 or 3 others would fly in, sometimes dive bombing one or another, then they would be off... over the roof, around the side of the house, through or around the trees. 2 or more would land in the tree, sit a minute then begin again. there were occasional quick time outs for a drink, and off they would go!

    They are fun...and it takes patience to shoot pictures of them as they zip around so quickly. A great photo essay and you have my vote!
