We enjoy watching them to relax and have included some enjoyable reggae music in the background to...

    These guys love Porterweed (shown in photo) and back then there was a tall hedge of the stuff close by the Garden House observatory and Cafe. It was always full of a large variety of hummers. Never knew which way to look next.

    Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Female 2

    I should find out what those purple flowers are called. She was definitely interested in checking them out, but didn't spend much time around any particular one. I like the Mexican Hat flowers scattered around in this photo, sticking out everywhere.

    Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Female

    Nothing too special, but this is the first hummingbird I've seen this year, and the only hummingbird I've ever photographed. I hope to take a lot more pictures, now that I have something other than a phone to use. I don't know if you've ever tried to photograph wild hummingbirds with a phone...

    Hummingbird ID, Los Dinamos, Mexico City, Mexico - 22 November 2020

    Any help identifying this little beauty is very much appreciated. Seen, singing away with a real melodious song (sadly not captured) while walking in the Dinamos, wooded valley to the South of Mexico City on 22 November 2020. Sadly I only have frontal shots so keeping my fingers crossed it’s...

    Hummingbird ID - Tequesquitengo, Mexico 27/2/21

    Saw these hummingbirds in Tequesquitengo, just South of Mexico City, Mexico. 1 & 2 were taken at the same time and 3 & 4 were taken at the same time, but I believe it could be the same bird or same species. The last 3 are the same birds, there were about 5/6 of these small hummingbird roaming...

    This female Ruby-throated hummingbird was enjoying her breakfast right outside my kitchen. I was able to catch this and a few other shots of her sipping from this pagoda plant.

    This is my favourite beautiful little graceful garden visitor. I love Anna's Hummingbirds. They stay in Vancouver year round even surviving our chilly winters. I shot this one resting in the fur tree next to my home.

    One at a time, please

    Two female Allen's (or is it Rufous'?) sharing. Count it: one, two. I took a long series of shots and almost missed this, thinking it was just one. They were actually working out their timing on how to share and how to use this new feeder with no resting stand. It's too bad I didn't have my...
