My Baby Hummingbirds

Camera Critters 
Well as you may have read on Oskar's Blog I have a humming bird feeder next to my computer desk.  This week there has been 2 or 3 baby hummingbirds visiting all day.  Finally with a great amount of stillness & stealth I was able to catch some photo's.





It's so cool to see them come all day.  You can hear the flurry of their wings as they approach.  The second picture was taken through glass while the rest were just taken through the screen. 

I wish I could mark them so I knew how many of them there are.  It's really cool, cause they come about 20 times a day!

Check out what all the other Camera Crittters are up to!

I have a Hummingbird feeder too, but it's not nearly as fancy as yours - that's really neat!! My hummers came late this year but their are many of them now. To look so sweet and innocent they are actually quite mean to each other. They do not share the feeder and swoop at each other on a regular basis. Fun to watch!!

I've only seen hummingbirds in the zoo. They have some in the tropical butterfly house. Very special little birds. Exciting to watch them.
You lucky girl!

Beautiful pictures Pam! I love hummingbirds! My son bought me a feeder for Mother's Day a couple of years ago. They come back to the same feeder every year and bring their babies too so you may have oodles of them eventually! :)

Really nice! There is just something about the hummingbird. I have always been amazed by them.

Humming birds are so entertaining. I try to grow plants in my garden that attract them.

Great shots! It's so hard to capture flying objects -well, at least I think so.

Such charming birds!
