Photo Description
I was sitting outside with my back against my patio door and hand feeding my favorite squirrel. This usually keeps her out of my bird-feeder when I heard this thump and felt something hit the side of my leg. Looking down I thought, WOW, what a huge bug. I reached down to pick it up and throw it into the grass when I realized it was a hummingbird. I could see it breathing, but it didn't move. I was hoping it wasn't injured, but just knocked out. My phone was with me and I was able to take pics. I held it, between my fingers, until it was able to grip my finger. It still had a hard time opening and keeping it's eyes open. It seemed like forever standing and holding this tiny bird waiting for it to come around. It finally was able to keep it's eyes open and stared at me and I stared back. At this point I didn't know what to do. We were looking at each other for what seemed like eternity. I didn't want to scare it, but I could walk around with it and it still stayed on my finger. I finally took a deep breath and blew it slowly out which seemed to make it weave to one side and back. It then flew away with a buzz sound. I watch the hummers at my feeders, but they are so fast and whiz past my head. I felt lucky to be able see and actually hold a hummingbird so close. The time was very surreal.

Photo Description
This is my photo of the little hummingbirds that come to our feeders daily. We have 19 feeders outside but, for some reason, this feeder is just simply their favorite. Here in the picture, you can see that it hangs with a wire next to it, holding another feeder below.

They always pile on this wire here, which is surprising because hummingbirds aren't too friendly with each other, yet these are pretty forgiving when others try and drink at the same time while another one or others are drinking. The top hummingbird, he's got a bit of irritation on his face, but he's still fine with the whole situation, for the moment anyway.

My husband and I hold our finger out sometimes and the hummingbirds will sit right on our finger to drink from their feeder, which just makes our day.

Look at the lower hummingbird, hehe his little eye is closed because of the other one's wing in his face. I've had them drinking from the feeders now for years, and we've seen many generations come and go. We have about 15 hummingbirds that are regulars, and we just love them to pieces!

Photo Location
Las Vegas, NV is where this photo was taken (our backyard). We have hummingbirds year-round which is super great.

We don't have much area to plant flowers in our yard as it's mostly concrete everywhere and an in-ground pool, so we had an idea for our backyard hummingbirds. That was to give them some real nectar, from real flowers.

This is a brand new to the world baby hummingbird. Yesterday was her first day out of the nest and I think we were as excited as the mother bird was.

The hummingbirds have owned the back garden, near the Mexican sage and other plants. They have been zooming around, especially one couple who obviously are interested in one another.

They are beautiful and graceful!

I was sitting on a porch of a local barber shop while my husband got a haircut. These hummingbirds came by and I thought I'd try to catch them with my camera. After I got home and loaded them onto my computer I couldnt keep from laughing.

We have several hummingbird feeders around the yard and Path Garden. This is at the front door where we can see this little guy standing "guard " over his own personal buffet.

A hummingbird looking for the perfect blossom! Those little critters are so dang fast. It's hard to get a picture of them, and forget about getting them to smile!

I tried to find out what kind it is. There are so many kinds of hummingbirds listed. It's unbelievable!

I wanted to share the beauty of the hummingbird. It's rare for me to get a picture of one not flying. I hope you enjoy this fascinating piece of Mother Nature's work.

I make my own hummingbird food and every year they come back. We love to sit and watch them feed. They fly right over our heads to get to the feeder.

I am amazed how aggressive they can be with each other. They are amazing little birds.

I was outside and saw there were up to 3 hummingbirds hanging out at the feeder. I decided to run in the house and grab my camera. Luckily, I was able to catch one relaxing on the perch, and it sat still long enough for me to zoom in on it.

This young Hummingbird came in under the patio roof to a potted lavender plant that was beginning to bloom. I was able to photograph the bird through a glass patio sliding door. I like the closeness, with a telephoto lens, and the detail in the photo.

This Rufous hummingbird really suprised us as we had not seen one before at our location. The beauty of the Mexican sage's purple blossoms must have attracted him.

The Mexican sage is a wonderful and very beautiful plant. Hummingbirds love to feed off the nectar in the blossoms. We have several planted around our gardens, and we are treated to hummingbird sightings on a daily basis this time of year.

It was raining and these little hummingbirds decided they had better behave themselves if they wanted to fill their little bellies before dark. Our two feeders stay busy. They are drinking a quart of sugar water a day. They are usually buzzing around the feeders and it's hard to count them, but it's a bunch.

It's hard for me to capture the beauty of hummingbirds as they are buzzing around like bees. I had to stand still at the feeder until a few of them decided I would not harm them.

Recently I was helping a friend move and as we were taking a moment to chat on the front porch at dusk this little guy kept buzzing our heads on his way to the feeder.
