These are the shots I’ve been wanting to get for ages. I’ve gotten lots of hummer photos…eating at the feeders and sitting in the trees…but I’ve never been able to get them eating at a natural food source (except this). These are our aloe plants out front, right outside our carport, where they dine often but always seem to get away.
The only “bummer” to all of this is that these aren’t my photos, they’re Tony’s, my husband. I wasn’t even home at the time…but my camera was.
This little girl hummingbird wasn’t afraid of him, I guess, so went about having her lunch while he took photos. They always seem to fly off the minute I get the camera when they’re at the aloe.
She looks so cute perching and sipping here.
So I whittled his photos down but I liked all of these too much to not show them. This is a study of a hummingbird feeding. Aren’t they awesome?
I’ll be really jealous if he wins a Pulitzer, though.
