During the past few days our hummingbird feeders have been busier than normal. We love watching those frisky little creatures. Many have become so comfortable with us that they sit at the feeders even though we may be only a few inches away. When they are chasing each other they will zip right through our deck. As friendly as they are, these hyper-drive hummingbirds just can't seem to sit still for a good pose. However, watching them in flight and getting an occasional freeze-frame is still exciting.
Our deck faces the west and we have had some amazing sunsets. The pinkish orange colors blended with the red nectar for a neon glow and the birds' feathers are so bright.
Then, sometimes, just their silhouettes in flight are beautiful.
