Hummmmmm . . .

 









 

 
 
 
 
 
the hummingbirds are going crazy
flitting from branch to branch
flying in, getting a drink and out they go again
 
I clicked photos off and on from 3:30-7:30
 
I am hoping you are thanking me
for not including the hundred plus photos I clicked
 
the feeder is in the midst of the annabelle hydrangeas
 
I grabbed a chair from the porch and sat outside
surrounded by the flutter of wings
the pictures are in the order of the fly in
 
the pine boughs are what the camera
caught as I was focusing in on the feeder
 
I could get hooked on this photography thing
probably need another camera and a tripod
 
thank you to my new followers
and for each of you who visit
and leave me your comments
 
enjoy these final summery days of august
love lynne

Great photos of hummingbirds doing their thing. We haven't had many this summer.

Tripods help a lot with capturing really clear photos. I'm just too lazy to use mine most of the time unfortunately. Loved these hummer shots, Lynne. Aren't they just the best winged creatures!

Great Hummer pics Lynne..What kind of hummers are they..They're different than ours?? I envy your patience..I bought a tripod this year in my quest to get a good full moon shot..Haven't gotten one yet..Tripods are cheap on Amazon..Even my little point and shoot fits on it...

Great hummingbird shots Lynne! Our feeders are so busy this week. They're getting ready to go south which is really depressing to me. They are so fun to watch. Then one day all of a sudden they're gone except for the odd straggler.

Great job catching those hummingbirds which is a tricky deal. Yes, photography is very addictive. Tripod is a must in my life :)

Hi Lynne, I haven't seen a hummer or for that matter many butterflies this summer. Those are great photos, and what a thrill to have them buzz right past you. Have a great weekend my friend! Love, Penny

Your pictures are gorgeous. You did a fantastic job capturing those sweet little birds. Our hummingbird feeder has also included woodpeckers and orioles this week. It's quite the happening place!

Beautiful shots! Totally understand about the many shots -- I could truly just keep right on clicking! My first peek at your blog... Joyce in WI (born in MA)

I had to smile at your comment about the hundreds of photos. That's the way it is when we try to capture these exquisite creatures. You got some excellent shots, Lynne. Well done.
