Hummingbird Love

We have been enjoying the regular company of hummingbirds on our homestead recently. Such cute and surprisingly friendly critters they are... trusting enough to drink from the feeder even if someone is holding it! I love them.

There is often a hummingbird or two perched on our fence between visits to the feeder.


I am amazed by how tiny they are, and how fast they can move their wings.


A moment of stillness.


And ready to take off again. Hummingbirds don't seem to ever stay still for long.


I am keeping the feeder filled and a watchful eye at the ready so I can savor each visit while they last. Before long these wee creatures will be off to warmer places before the snow flies.

Do you have hummingbirds at your place?
