Don't fly away


Hummingbird, don't fly away...

Remember Seals & Crofts song "Hummingbird"?
I can barely hear the refrain in my head.
Asking the hummingbird not to fly away.

Hummingbird, don't fly away.
She flew away.
But she came back, just like the song in my mind.

Oh, you photographers who can capture hummingbirds. You know what kind of image I'd get? A grey smudge.

I painted one. It's stuck around since the mid 90's

Fantastic hummer pics! They are so difficult to photograph.

Did John Belushi teach her table manners? Her whole head's in the red beer mug! What a hog!

(Yes, anything to be different . . . Nice catch!)

The one where she's head first in the flower is wonderful!

Great photos.
I will have to move my hummingbird feeder before I can take photos because the surroundings are terrable.

Jewels with wings...
We had a few two weeks ago but the weather is cold again. Your photos really cheered up my gloomy gloomy wet world today!

Such a glutton!
So well captured!

Jewels with wings - that is a great one!
Gluttony? Oh my. I see energy conversion. Gluttony? hmmm.

PA, a painting of one is much more trustworthy, and much less of a glutton, right?

Nice! I miss seeing the little hummingbirds buzzing around. Sadly, they don't come this far north.

Amazing photos. I have tried and tried to get pictures of hummingbirds but with absolutely no success.
