I’m still on DC time so I woke up early thinking of the hummingbirds. I went out in my robe and boots to bring in the frozen feeders, returning them outside an hour later. The hummingbirds came immediately and rewarded me by posing.
I love my Anna’s Hummingbirds!
Aren’t they wonderful? 🙂 🙂
They are a complete delight, Susanne. So lovely to see your photos of them.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks so much, Pete! I never get tired of seeing them! 🙂 🙂
They are so very beautiful – and I’m in awe of your ability to capture them with your camera!!
Oh thank you so much! This morning after I replaced the feeders I hid in the shed nearby and took tons of pictures! I think they knew I was in there but obliged me anyway! 🙂

Wowzers, Susanne!! Oh my, they are stunning and obviously very appreciative of the food you put out! Mine used to pose and watch me as I contorted to take pics! Vivid hummers–amazing!
Thanks so much, Terri! I do love those little birds!! 😍😍
I can’t think of a finer bird to watch than a hummingbird.
Yes, I agree! 😍😍
My favorite species of hummingbird. We get a lot in our yard, but I’ve never gotten one picture as good as these.
Thank you. I love having these birds in my yard everyday and am happy they let me take pictures of them! 😊
Love that top photo. Such colors.
Thanks so much, Graham.
Thank you! 🙂
Gorgeous detail in those photos, you can almost feel how soft those gray front feathers would be. Also, I think your hummingbirds love you back – maybe more for their photo ops than for the feeder. Truly, they are posing for you and urging you with the question “did you get that magenta feathering?” I’ve been reading “The Bird Way” and apparently one researcher found that Anna’s Hummingbirds actually engage in actual bird play! So perhaps they are engaging with you in “bird play”!
I love them and I think they love me back! I was hiding in the nearby garden shed with the door open when I took these pictures. Before feeding they came over to say ‘hello, I see you there!’
