Happy Friday, y'all!
I can't think of a better way to go into the weekend than with Hummingbirds! I actually took these last winter, because that's when we get them down here. These are Rubythroat Hummingbirds (RTH for short).
The first two shots are of a juvenile male who is just coming into his red throat feathers. The last is of a female who decided to hang out one afternoon. She must have been there for at least an hour, flying down to the feeder just below this tree, having a snack, then flying back up into the tree for a bit of a rest.
And before anyone gets photo-critical, let me just say that it's really tough to get a shot of a moving hummingbird without pro equipment! Don't forget to click on the images!
Hummingbirds always make me smile -- Have a great day & weekend!
P.S. -- Sorry I enabled comment moderation this morning - I got my very first ever spam comment! I'll see how it goes and I'll probably remove it later. Thanks for your patience!
