Hummers in the yard

6 posts in this topic

The hummingbirds are back in force, of course. I've been busier than a male hummer chasing others off territory this last week, with two more weeks booked up almost solid, which explains my intermittent presence on the boards.

The first image is from the archives and may seem familiar to some of you, though it's not one I've posted before. A discerning birder will be able to tell why it couldn't have been captured this early in the season. wink

The second image is from today.

Glad to hear business is good!

I like the contrast on the 2nd. If they were a game bird,how many do you suppose it would take to fill up a hungry hunter? grin

Thanks guys. The light wasn't the best, but I really wanted to get the gear dialed in before the exhausting four-day shoot starts tomorrow (whew, I'm not 20 anymore, I know!) winkwink

I'm thinking four-and-twenty hummingbirds baked in a pie wouldn't satisfy anything bigger than an alley cat. So, if a hungry hunter is a human hunter, I figure it would take 438,442. gringrin

Wow, that would be a lot of feathers to pluck. wink

Cool backgrounds on these little buggers. It really makes them stand out.
