After Hurricane Ike there seemed to be a lot of displaced hummingbirds as we had more hummers around the two weeks after Ike than we normally have. As of today most have moved on their migration. SO I spent some time out this week trying to capture a few.
Then there's one more Hummer
Sorry there are so many but had fun doing it. Thanks for looking.
Crank me up baby

And it's that time of the year again. I'd rather shoot these than flowers any day. The yard has turned into a gang turf war between the resident Anna's and three of these Male Rufous Hummingbird Hooligan.
Have a ducky week. I'm sorting shots from last weekend in Central Oregon.
All My Hummer Shots Are Shot Outdoors With All Natural Light.
I hope this isn't the last update!
The babies just look at us and say...Does this nest make us look fat??
Every morning that I go out to see them, I am afraid that they will be gone. I have really enjoyed them...
ClassyShot..you asked what kind they were?? I don't know, They are kinda bland with a little green on their back but not much....What kind are they? Enjoy!
Susan I adore you....
My name's Bandit. Im the brother of the red headed guy in the avatar. I may be younger but I managed to take a feeder all for myself.
Bandit is the second male to show up for the winter. We are now at four here in the yard. Two male and two female.
Same old thing.
My winter population is now up to three with the arrival of another female. When she calms down a little I'll get some shots of her. The new female and "Miss November" are really having it out at the feeder. They get loud enough I can hear them in the house with the windows closed.
I bring the feeders in at night and get them back out well before daylight so they don't freeze and break.
Another Fine Mess
If I did this pop up properly...then I've finally "arrived"!!
