Never Get Tired of Hummers

I must admit, now that the hummers are here I’ve been a bit addicted to constantly being on the outlook for them. I have definitely confirmed that there are at least two of them, and perhaps up to four that buzz in and out of my garden.

They’ve been hungrily dining on the sweet water that I mix for them, 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of warm water (then cooled.) I even got them a second feeder that has a place for them to sit while dining. But they prefer the one without prime seating. Go figure.



Even on Monday at Bombay Hook I managed to find the Hummer’s hangout spot. Visiting the blooming milkweed, one came close to me and hovered while fully investigating.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I.

  1. I’ve had a feeder up all season and finally saw my first last week. Just in time for them to go south!

    • That’s interesting – somehow I thought you would have hummingbirds as well. I’ll definitely have to look into that. In the meantime, I’m so thrilled to share something new and special with you.

      • Thank you…so am I. It is my first time on Google Plus and when I saw you were on there I had to follow you. I am a fan of your work and had to see what you were up to 🙂

        • I was active on Google + last year due to the project 365. But I found that people can easily right click and download my images – so no protection. I also was overwhelmed with too much time on social media outlets. So I’ve pulled back from Google +, so you won’t see much there. It’s a fun place to see beautiful photos though.

        • I too was worried by people stealing photos, but I never post anything bigger that half a mb…that way if someone steals anything they can’t do much with them. But you are right…easy to spend too much time on social media
