Ahhhhhhh … the pause that refreshes!

Hummingbirds really know how to live the good life. Just ask them.

    Aww! Is this a youngster?

  2. Marla Says:

    Beautiful photos, as usual. Thanks for sharing them.

    The second one is a youngster I believe, Gary will know for sure. In watching the hummers I think they are the top dog of birds. They harass and toy with all others even Hawks and Owls. Their supreme flying skills and cockiness give them the edge. The nesting season seems to be the only time they are at a disadvantage. Dave
