Wow. Those are gorgeous shots! It is so hard to capture hummingbirds on film. My shots are all blurry. Maybe I need a new camera. ;)

Was just on Seeking sanity and saw your comment. Dropped by just because I thought you had such a cute blog name. And, am so glad I did, because hummingbirds are my favorite. If I gave you credit (linked to your blog), would you mind if I used one in a post I am writing about my gram? These totally remind me of her?

Let me know.

Those are beautiful!!!

another good thing said...

Is it bad that I was thinking the next shot was going to be the raccoon eating the hummingbirds?

niobe said...

Amazing. (and I was thinking the same thing as Another Good Thing, but we all know I have this paranoia about raccoons)

Dear PM,

Yesterday you showed up in my Google Reader as a recommended read and I thought, I know that name! How is it I've never been in your beautiful living room until today?

Hi. Nutmeg here. So nice to meet you and your hummingbirds.

WOW. WOWOWOWOWOW.

I have never-- NEVER-- seen a photo of a hummingbird with its beak open!! That's amazing-- you are a fantastic photographer!

What kind of hummingbirds do you have? We have ruby-throated here, but they are very small and quick, and extreeeeemely hard to capture on film...

Thanks for sharing these!

xoxo CGF

Another wow! Beautiful photos!

Louise said...

The hummingbirds are fantastic. But I think the raccoon is my favorite!

Magpie said...

Amazing pictures. I love the second one - with the bird sort of curled in the air.

By the way, you can use plain sugar water - it doesn't need to be red. The flower feeder thingys do the attraction trick.

SensitiveDad said...

I never knew there were so many different kinds of hummingbirds!

Raccoons are cute but did you know their poop is really dangerous? Carries some weird somethingorother that can cause paralysis or something you wouldn't consider. I know, I know, he IS terribly cute. I'm just saying, I've got my kids really enjoying their hand washing after a good play in the yard.
