A beautiful ballet

The beating of tiny wings

Flitting… Flying

Flying … Flirting

Flirting … Chasing

Chasing … Darting

Darting … Hovering

Hovering … Drinking

Drinking … Resting

  1. I love hummers. I work at a wild bird store. Every year we get hundreds upon hundreds here at the store. They leave around mid Oct. They are brave little critters. I love your photos just beautiful.

  2. I love hummingbirds. On Deal Island, if I read outside on the deck, they would peek at my book while hovering over my right shoulder.

    Thanks, Jeanne!

  3. I love the photos and the beautiful bird that runs the shelter. 🙂

  4. I’m jealous – just lovely!
