Before They Are Gone


Today was a lucky day, the hummers are still visiting my flowers and feeders and I was fortunate enough to capture a few good pics.

The fushia color of some impatients on my back deck must have caught the eye of the hummers.

I'm happy my husband was standing at the sliding glass door that opens to the deck and spied the visitors. 

I keep my camera sitting on the counter next to the slider so I can grab it quickly.

The hummer also enjoyed the nectar from an Angelonia flower. 

Earlier in the day, I snapped a hummer sitting on a branch.

I don't know how much longer they will visit my feeders.

Hummers Visiting A Friend in Missouri

My friend, Linda T., in Cape Girardeau, MO (where we lived before moving to Kentucky) shared some fabulous pics of her visitors this week.

Take a look at this white hummer migrating through her area.

What a treat to have a stunning white hummer at your feeder! I'm thinking this may be an albino hummingbird since I don't see any other pigments. 

Other hummers visiting Linda's feeders.

  1. What great photos of the hummingbirds.
    In the Netherlands we only see this species in a zoo.
    Greetings Irma

  2. I have only two or three Hummingbirds still here at my feeders. We always leave our feeders out for migrants coming south. Maybe one of yours will stop by.
    Amazing video of your friend's feeder with a white hummingbird in the flock!
    Beautiful butterfly!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! Awesome photos and video of the beautiful humming birds ~ !

  4. The white hummer is really amazing! I didn't know there was one. Love your hummers too and the beautiful blooms. I was happy to see your post today. You take such beautiful photos. Happy weekend!

  5. Lovely to know there are many such birds everywhere, flitting about in my neck of the woods particularly this time of year!

  6. Love your photos. Speaking for myself, I think hummingbirds represent something magical, in that I have had them hover right in front of my nose checking me out. It doesn't get any better than that with nature.

  7. Amazing hummingbird photos! Thanks for sharing!

  8. oh dear, these are all great photos.
