This summer we added a hummingbird feeder to our yard. Then the waiting game began.
It took about five days for them to find the feeder.
I read up on how to capture the best picture. You can see how the pros do it HERE. But since I am not a pro and don't want to take the time to create a set up like they described, you get our kitchen window version.
So my son and I have been taking turns trying to catch these little guys in action. We set out the camera near the window and this is what we have caught so far.
|Male Ruby-throated Hummingbird|
|Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird|
|They weigh about the same as 2.5 paper clips.|
|A resting humming bird can take up to 250 breathes per minute.|
|My attempt to grab a picture with my phone. I love Instagram.|

Thanks for stopping by my backyard!
Have a blessed day!Pin It
