Hummingbird Delight

When we put out the first hummingbird feeder, we were expecting it to take a long time before anything would be attracted. Boy were we wrong. Within two days we had several hummingbirds coming up for that sweet sugarwater, and within a month we had dozens. We're up to three feeders now, and Annie's replacing the water in at least one every day.

It's worth it, though, especially on beautiful evenings like last night, when the sun is setting and the hum of tiny wings fills the air. I broke out the new camera and got a couple of nice shots I thought I'd share with you.

I scared them away by getting too close, but I thought this was a nice shot anyway.

A little closer.

Finally thought to use the flash.

When are you going to hang up some Russell feeders?

I have to get the porch beams reinforced first, since hanging a giant trough full of meat from the current setup would bust it :-)
