HUMMINGBIRDS!! A few hummingbirds have become regular visitors and of course, I’ve become a little obsessed. You may have to ignore me at some point, because there will be more photos…because I’m out of control.
I’m learning a lot about these delicate birds, ONE of which is the fact that they can be territorial. I’ve seen videos before of lots of hummingbirds enjoying the feeders together, but the first one that found my feeder has a firm policy of NO SHARING.
TWO…The hummingbirds little wings are truly amazing. During migration, a hummingbird’s wings flap 15 to 80 times a second.
I’m looking forward to just a little more time with the hummingbirds, because soon their migration will begin.
Now don’t say I didn’t warn you, I have a few more images to share…so brace yourselves.
I’ve had time to enjoy the birds now that I have a window into the woods again, I’ve also not been out and about doing much of anything. Here’s some advice.
Take your Vit. C, rest, eat well, go to bed early, avoid human contact of any sort. I would advise that you stay away from your pets too, even fish. I came down with laryngitis and haven’t had a voice for nine days. I know how I picked up my germs and I have my husband locked in a closet right now. With the holidays coming, everyone should be in anti-virus mode, make sure you have plenty of closets to lock family members in if they begin to sniffle.
Back to the birds. They seem to be in fine shape. Flitting back and forth in front of my window, fighting over the peanuts I put out for them…not one of them appears to have a cold. The point of all this rambling around is that you’re going to see a lot of bird images on here for a while. I know, why couldn’t I have just said that in the first place?
Sandhill Cranes come in for a landing at sunset in Sarasota, Florida.
It’s been a few years since I last saw Babe. She’s got a new home now, living with her buddies. This image is one of my poorly done shots, but I’ve always liked it anyway. Here’s to Babe, happy trails old friend.
Looking through my images I found this butterfly from last summer.
I can’t wait to get back home and start putting my little garden back together. Of course I can’t plant anything much until next spring, but I can wait. I’ll have the birds all winter and that will be heaven.
