Hummingbird Hatchlings

These tiny little bitty hummingbirds hatched directly over my barbecue one season.  I couldn’t bring myself to remove them so there was no use of the barbecue so it sat there, idle.. cold and neglected for at least several months.

It was such a pleasure to watch momma bird bring them their meals and feed them several times a day.  We were able to watch from right inside my home from a big kitchen window.  These pictures were taken outside with me perched on a chair and I was surprised that the mom let me get so close without freaking out.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    Your pictures are amazing! I just love hummingbirds. We see a lot of them up at our cabin since we have a feeder up there. You are so fortunate to have been able to see the babies up close like that!

      I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw them. I’ve taken several pictures of hb in flight but they aren’t nearly as neat. Thanks so much for your feedback. It means a lot. 😀
