I was sitting outside, at the table on my sister’s deck, trying to capture a good photo of one of her many hummingbirds. She has several feeders as well as a ton of flowers all around so the photo opportunities were abundant. I even put a feeder right in the center of the table, inches away from me but still was not that happy with the shots I was getting.
I got this one…
And then this…
But the one that surprised me was THIS!! Look carefully. (I call it “Incoming”!)
And then my favorite.
I almost erased it until I really looked at it!!!
I’m so glad I didn’t delete it. I LOVE this picture!
Who knows what else we miss when we don’t really look closely….

Your pictures are perfect for this week’s photo challenge, especially the last two 🙂
For some reason I thought of humming birds too when I thought of ‘Surprise’. I guess because it was surprising to have spotted one in my patio last summer when I had for large pots full of blooming Sweet Alyssum.
I love it too….. and all the rest of them!
These are beautiful Kathie, I am so glad you did not delete that last one too! :o) xxx
Amazing shots. I don’t recognize the rust red bird. I recognize the green one, though. I do love hummingbirds!
It’s a Rufous Hummingbird. We mostly have Anna’s here but Rufous in the summertime.
I have never gotten a good shot of a hummingbird. That first one is great. But you’re right…the last one, the surprise, that one is luscious!!! Been away, now I’m back, maybe. Missed your stuff.
Thanks and welcome back. yeah, I’ve been MIA off and on for a while also. But I check for fresh fish regularly!
HA! yeah, not too much “fresh fish” lately, and I did miss posting and “seeing” everyone online (without seeing anyone).
