Hummingbird Week Day 6
I took yesterday off for a social whirlwind of commitments. Why do these things all pile up onto the same day? This morning I was up and in the photoblind a few minutes after seven. Hummingbirds are really hungry in the morning after going without food during the night. With their extremely high metabolism they are ravenous for nectar in the morning. I had a few hummingbirds hovering around me this morning as I was setting up. Some are pretty fearless. They are so cool. Here are a some of my favorites from this morning.
