Baby Hummingbird Photos

Out by the blooming sunflower where our nectar feeder sits, we notice tiny hummingbirds at the feeder. Every once in a while, a much larger hummingbird will circle around the smaller ones. I think we are observing babies.

What a happy day to have seen them! We prayed God would bring them back so we could photograph them, and we quietly waited on the porch. Then, we snapped as many photos as we could, hoping to catch them in the frame. We did!

Enjoy these beautiful creatures.

Maybe the Mother Hummingbird?
They are so mysterious and rarely observed. 

Hummingbirds are so delightful. Have you witnessed something rarely observed in nature lately?

Awesome photos, Heather. Really. A really good hummingbird photo remains elusive to me. Bravo!

 It was easier because the baby hummingbirds stay perched longer! Have a great day, Patricia!
