Hummingbirds In Our Yard...

I truly enjoy watching these smallest of all birds that visit our yard.  Each year we look forward to the first sighting of the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds.  I hope that you enjoy them too...



Here a female gathers spider web silk to add to her nest...



The male is enjoying a sip of sugar water...







If you want to photograph hummers remember to use a fast shutter speed and a high ISO in order to capture their frantic movements.
