Hummers

DSC_5485(1600x1200)These day lilies have been in bloom for a week or so, this hummer thought they looked pretty good.  I think the lilies are a tad too deep for his tomgue to easily reach but he did spend several minutes checking them all out.DSC_5487(1600x1200)These impatiens are more suitable but none of the garden flowers are as attractive as the nectar feeders which must seem a bottomless miracle to hummingbirds.

    • I thought I’d best get after some hummer pics, summer was wasting! They are just now coming out of their breeding hiatus. They hit the feeders hard when they arrive, trying to get caught up from the long flight, I guess, then they’ll go a few weeks tending the young. I think they go hard after bugs to get the protien for the growth spurt the tiny babies go through, then hit the feeders for maintenance.
