My Hummer

No I don't have an SUV!!
What I do have is a backyard, that I'm trying to transform into a paradise for birds!! Hummingbirds are one of my favorite! We have a few that frequent the feeder and flowers in the yard. Do you know how hard it is get a hummingbird to stay still long enough to snap a photo?? I've been trying for several weeks. Finally, I got lucky. Isn't he/she (I don't know how to tell a male hummingbird from a female, do you?) adorable??

Birds are one of my favorite animals. Wouldn't it be great to fly like a bird?? The view of the beauties of the earth would be fantastic!!

I'm very impressed you got a picture of a hummingbird without his wings flapping everywhere!! Too bad Nathan wasn't paying attention. He needs to identify birds for a scout elective.

You take beautiful pictures!

Oh to be a bird, and just sit on a wire, and sing!!

Cindy, thanks for the lovely story you left on my blog. It was a great way for me to start my day.

And your wee birdie is lovely too.

Wow, I had no idea the backyard was so beautiful. I love the picture.

Just remember that in the bird world, the male is (usually) the showy-er one with more brilliant colors. The female is the drab one nearby with the look on her face of, "Go ahead and show off...I'm more camoflaged over here". lol
