Nothing satisfies a hobby photographer more than capturing great close-ups of birds feeding.

Satisfaction of one’s curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life. Linus Pauling, Scientist

  1. Incredible pictures… as always 🙂 Two summers ago, we stayed in a campground that was full of hummingbirds. They are so magical, it took my breath away to watch them in action. Awesome!

  2. These photos are absolutely amazing Terri. We have hummingbirds just for the few short summer months up here in Canada. Am so fascinated how they can migrate such vast distances for such a tiny bird.

    Thank you for sharing. Greatly enjoyed seeing them! 🙂

  3. Hummingbirds!!!! They are on my bucket list (along with fireflies) None in Australia, so I’m going to have to get to the US before I die so I can see them in real life – gorgeous photos Terri!

  5. Amazing shots! My husband is obsessed with watching his hummingbird feeder and waiting for one to arrive. They are really fun to watch. We have several bird feeders and watch them every evening.

  6. I am seriously jealous about your hummingbird photos. I can never get one. One day I staked out a spot and finally gave up and…just then…one came right up to my nose and just stared at me. Guess it thought I was a flower? Sigh…..

    • Haha, that is so typical of those hummers! Mine are pretty aggressive. Trust me, I’ve (im)patiently waited for them to feed, and they will pick that time to ignore me 🙂


  7. I must learn how to use a camera. I heard a noisy critter outside our patio and looked up to find a squirrel sitting in our staghorn fern, making lunch of the dried leaves. Took 3 photos only to discover I had not taken 3 photos. Sigh…..
