Hummingbirds Pt 2

After hours of waiting and just missing out on taking photos
I managed to sneak up on this little fella on the feeder.
I was indoors at the time so the photos are a bit dark.

They are about 3 1/2 inches in size.

Some of them aren't much bigger than the local dragonflies.

With the help of Mr Google I've discovered that she is a female Ruby-Crested Hummingbird.

We also had a Black-Chinned Hummingbird but that one flew away before I had chance to get the camera.  At one point we had two birds on the feeder at the same time.


  1. I have spent long hours at my hummingbird feeder just to capture a few photos. Fascinating bird.- fast and tiny, I think of them as the Snitch of the Muggle world.

    1. oh sorry, how rude not to say I thought your photos were great, especially the last one. Sometimes my fingers are typing differently than my thoughts :)

  2. Great photos love the sunshine too.
