Lighting Up

As of today, I have not been able to snap a pic of the young eagle in flight and 
listening to it as I create this post, I know that one of the adults will soon be by to feed it soon give him a handout.  For today, I decided to go to the opposite end of the spectrum of birds around our yard...not the huge raptors but rather the tiny Ruby Throated Hummingbird.  You may have to look a little harder in that middle photo but he is there.

Have you ever noticed how people light up when they see one of these little guys darting around?

Sharing with you and those at


Lovely photos JP.
Must tell you, I changed all my light bulbs to the new specified lcd.. they are so expensive.
Am not sure , if its cut my electric bill.

When I see hummingbirds I think of my mom. Tiny, flying jewels they are.

they like your lovely flowers JP.

The Hummingbird in your shots is very well camouflaged against the foliage and flowers. Flying tresures.
I did have to take a closer look before I spotted the hummingbird. What a treat to see them in your garden!

He is very well hidden, and yet your pictures are sharp and clear! They are just TOO hard for me to snap, you did good!
You always have such pretty flowers.

I'm thrilled every time I see one of these amazing little birds. Nice shots of them feeding from the flowers.

Nothing thrills my mom more than a hummingbird or a cardinal. Love your flowers, too.

I spotted him right away in the first picture but he blends right in on the second shot. I haven't seen one hummingbird around here this year

Sweet hummingbirds. I take great pleasure in having them around a little while- they are a bright spot in my day ;)

We were playing cards outside the other day with some family/friends and we all stopped to watch a hummingbird. I said, "it's one grows tired of watching hummingbirds or deer." It's true! As shown by your last two posts!

Like a fairy among the flowers.
The fairy queen or king visiting the flowers. How cool! Excellent captures.
Sweet hummer! Hope you also have some success with your raptor as well!

I know I get excited ...and, have yet to photograph one .... they move so quickly...unless of course you get a 'poser' or have a feeder around.... I'm just not quick enough with my camera ...yet!
