Up

This little guy was watching another hummingbird flying just out of the view of the camera. I was trying to catch them both in the frame together but didn’t have any luck.

Taking a break

I put some fresh nectar out for the hummingbirds and it didn’t take long for this little guy to show up. Summer has arrived here in the St. Louis area and it’s hot and humid. I’m sure this little guy needed a break.

Still around

The hummingbirds are still around but I’m not sure how much longer. It is getting to be that time of year when they’ll start their migration south. I’ll miss these little guys as I love to take photos of them, and to just watch in general.

Flash!

Kind of a lazy day around the house today as it was another hot and humid one out. As I was watering the plants this evening I noticed the hummingbirds were active. By the time I was done it was getting dark and they had slowed down but I was able to get this one decent shot with the flash.
