Outside My Window

Zach and I have been trying to get a shot of some visiting hummingbirds for over a month now, so he came up with the bright idea to move the little feeder to a place outside the dining room window so we could watch for them. It's a fragile set-up, one good gust of wind will toss it over, but it's done us well over the past few days.





These first two captures are Zach's. Didn't he do a wonderful job? He has more patience and determination than I do (before his meds start to wear off anyway). He also isn't cooking supper, and folding clothes, in between hummer visits. :-) He got several shots like this the other day, I'm so proud!

This is the only one of mine that wasn't all blurry. I think it's the male but he's not turned so we can see his red throat.

We sure had a lot of fun trying and I think he's starting to catch Nanaw's photography bug, I sure hope so, I need a partner!

Y'all have a great weekend now, ya hear?

Wow - those are all great. Yeah, it would be nice to have that lil pardner on your photo taking expeditions. He's a great side-kick as it is, and so cute to boot!

You have a great weekend also, Ms Brenda!

I love watching hummingbirds. My SIL has a several feeders along her front porch. I could sit there quietly for hours!

Tell Zach he did a fabulous job of taking pictures of that hummingbird...wow, I'm quite impressed:-) I have two hummingbird feeders hanging from the eaves outside my kitchen window so whenever I'm at the counter washing dishes or cooking, I can enjoy watching them come feed. Have a great weekend my friend. xoxo

Wow! Those are some great shots of the hummingbirds! It doesn't take much for that photography bug to bite, does it? I hope we'll get to see more of Zach's handiwork in the future!

Those are all great shots. I love humming birds and have been trying to get some of mine at the feeder but the birds have been blurry in my photos. What a great job!

You and Zach both did a terrific job taking these pictures, they are so focused! I love Hummingbirds. Every now and then I'll see one in the garden feeding on the flowers...they zip in and zip out...I'm so glad you were able to catch these little guys to share with all of us!

hope you're having a good weekend ~

Those are wonderful Brenda! What a great site out your window watching those little things and your corn looks likes it's doing good too!

What amazing little birds. I would imagine that it's pretty difficult to get a good photo. You and Zach did a great job.
