We have hummingbirds!
Life is good!
My best guess is that this is an Allen's Hummingbird.
Linked to WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY. Thank you to Stewart for hosting.... and to the talented and friendly birders who link there.

I know mine will be leaving soon and that makes me sad.
Love the colors shown in the bottom shot and look at how the top shot shows it literally hanging in air in the first one for a nip at the nectar!

Wonderful shots of the hummers. I haven't spotted any yet at my house. Not sure why as I usually do.

Imagine I have never seen a hummingbird only in a zoo ! Amazing little creatures !

I love hummers. I would love to see more of the hummers from the west, since we only see the Ruby-throated here. Have a happy day!

I love those birds...we don't see them often her in Alberta where we live...but just yesterday we were sitting outside and one little guy came and visited one of the flowers in the courtyard!!

Wha a cute little guy (or girl)! I see them in the spring and fall. I guess it's fall because I have one buzzing my flowers right now.
August 14, 2013 at 12:13 PM
Wow! How wondeful to have them in your garden. that 2nd shot is stunning
August 14, 2013 at 01:28 PM
Cannot get mine to sit still long enough for a photo! Love these, Sallie.
August 14, 2013 at 02:10 PM
How nice... I love theses little.. Michelle

I'm just a wee bit jealous as I've never been able to get a good photo of a hummingbird. Our daughter in Colorado has a feeder on a 2nd-floor deck and they swarm around that at certain times of the year.
Very nice shots!

Hummingbirds are so beautiful! I bet you're overjoyed seeing them :-)

Oh yes, life is good with these little guys on the planet. Great shots Sallie!

I don't know much about them, but we usually have a few buzzing around our backyard. They are VERY territorial...

What beautiful photos. I especially love the second one. I have never seen a hummingbird in the flesh and would love to.

I'm so excited to see these hummingbirds, Sallie. I can never seem to get close enough, or move fast enough, to capture the ones that feed here. I love how you captured one in your first photo.
