    Simply unbelievable shots! You need to be on National Geographic!! Or maybe write a book on the life of hummingbirds!! What a beautiful knight he is!

    gorgeous! I didn’t even realize a humming bird looked like that up close!

    • A friend gave me a feeder that attaches to my window, so I get up close and personal with them. What I never realized before is that they don’t use their beaks like a straw, but they lap like a dog with their long tongues. 🙂

    Clever you to catch this elusive bird so beautifully. I love your photographs of birds. I had to remove a bouquet of silk brilliant orange poppies from in front of our window. The little darlings couldn’t believe it wasn’t there for the supping. Virginia

  4. You captured his beauty perfectly!

  6. how do you get so close to them without scaring them away? how ?
    great shots 🙂 and i love your personification of the bird also, as always.

  7. A beautiful bird. He looks a little upset though. Did he lose some battle? : )
