Hummingbird Photos

Not much painting got done this past week. Working two additional jobs has exhausted me and slowed down my progress. AND....both of my kids came down with the flu last week! Not to mention the pollen has my allergies really fired up.

Yesterday we all stayed home from church and I spent some time out in the neighborhood while everyone else was gone (or asleep). It was so peaceful and quiet. I parked myself in a chair near the neighbor's hummingbird feeders and waited patiently with the camera.

After watching one of my cats meander through the yard, I glanced back at the feeders and low and behold, one of my feathered friends had shown up!

I thought you would enjoy these photos I managed to get of these elusive little birds.

I published the best one on cards & gifts in my Zazzle shop.

This week is supposed to be beautiful weather all week, so I'll be watching for more opportunities to capture them...maybe I'll even do a painting this week of one of them as well. :)

Thanks so much for stopping in to view my work and for sharing my website with fellow pet lovers! Comments are always welcome.

Really beautiful photos Jai! Love the one getting a drink out of the feeder. Glad you were able to get a shot of one of those little guys, they move so quick! :)
