Watch the Birdee!!!




If you click on the close-up photo, you'll see what I've not seen in the dozens of time she's bellied up to the trough: what looked like a mousy little brownish gray bird actually has quite a bit of fiery green in her plumage. [click on the photos to embiggenate and see even more detail]

I'm remembering why I loved this camera so much, and I'm glad I've got these photos of the pretty girl to remind me of her in the winter months. :)

Damn! How do you do it? They are 8 feet away from me and by the time I click the camera they are gone! Wonderful shots! I love these creatures! Always fun to watch!

A branch placed near the feeder where the hummer could perch might get you some good shots.

I am fortunate in that Napa's hummingbirds do NOT fly south in winter. They are luckily for me year-round residents.
