more hummingbird fun

Art took this picture of me filling the hummingbird feeder. They were so unafraid of me that even while I was holding it they would light and feed. I could feel them brush my hand.The picture and this video were taken almost 3 weeks ago. The hummingbirds were very active. Almost frenzied. Look how they compete for this feeder while there are 5 other feeders in the immediate area.
Currently the hummer traffic is almost nil but I'm told that's because they are nesting. In a little while they'll be back with a vengance and I'll be ready with camera in hand.

And this picture I took today. Just look at it. How much more perfect could it be .... if it were only in focus ?!!!!! Geez Louise! Oh, the background's nice. Very much in focus. Carol .... get up here with that camera of yours!

You need to put the camera on macro for a close shot like this...very cool.

The grass looks nice!

I agree with Kevin - the grass does look nice!
No, seriously, awesome photos. You are so fortunate to have so many - I get two - one at a time and they just buzz on through on the way to my neighbours....
