After a mostly gray, soggy and cold week, it was nice to find reminders of summers past in the photo files.  Each year, we enjoy the aerial antics of the ruby-throated hummingbirds who spend the summer with us  following their  yearly migration from central America.  Their quickness of wing is always a challenge for the little pocket digital cameras, but that doesn’t keep us from trying to capture them in pixels.

  1. These little hummers are just the sweetest creatures. They come right by your head here, while they are looking for winter plants that flower, like our Mexican heather. I bet they’d be so warm if one could hold one!

    1. Thanks! It was a day when everything was just right — very bright and was able to shoot at the little camera’s fastest speed 1/2000th of a second. Still his wings have some motion blur.
