Just Humming Along

I glanced out the window this afternoon only to see three hummingbirds drinking from the flowers. I quickly grabbed my camera and headed out. By then of course they had flown away so I waited...and waited...and waited some more. And look what my patience was rewarded with! To really appreciate these please click on each picture to enlarge them. The hummingbird in this last photo is blurry but I wanted you to see it's beak open.

You are such a good photographer. Your camera must be pretty fast to catch those wings.

They are always moving so fast, it's nice to see what they actually look like. You're flowers are beautiful!

Oh, wow! When I get good shots it is because I take a million pics and am sure to get at least one or two good ones. To get pics like these of hummingbirds (of all things) shows great skill. They are lovely.
