Hummingbird Silhouettes

The last two evenings while eating dinner, we've noticed our hummingbird feeder outside the window doing a booming business. Saturday we saw as many as six hovering around the feeder.

We'll have to ask our neighbors if they took their feeder down, because we're getting more action lately.


  1. Beautiful perfect symmetry in the 2nd and 3rd shots! I like the motion of the wings in the first shot. The DoF creates nice bokeh too! I miss my hummingbirds.

  2. Yolanda,
    Thank you! I have to admit that I had to look up the word "bokeh". I learned something new this morning - thank you! Hope you get to your hummingbirds soon. :)

  3. Ok, time to get my feeder up. Such cute little birds - such aggressive little warriors when battling for the feeder. Great silhouettes. Looks almost like they're posing.

  4. Thanks Kari. They are aggressive. They really let us know when they want more "juice". They also seem friendly with us!
