Be Amazed Again-Hummingbird Return

Hummingbird Return!

Hummingbird Return!

YAY! Finally! I saw the first hummingbird of the season in my backyard last night and when it returned tonight at around the same time, I was ready with my camera!

I had never seen a hummingbird until last year and I fell in love with the little birds! I introduced my blog last August with some of the first posts being about my search for a hummingbird. I watched for the birds each evening, using binoculars for close up views. Seeing the vivid ruby throat was astonishing. I took a picture as proof of my sighting and you can see the very tiny bird image here.

Now, I have a camera with zoom capability, hence this close up picture. I took two blurry pictures and this featured picture before it flew away. In my excitement, I was lucky to get this shot.

I remain amazed at the beauty of the little birds. Hopefully, I will be able to capture some more pictures, including the glorious ruby throated male. Let the summer viewing begin!

(I am also posting this into Lucile’s Photo Rehab Clinic as my best hummingbird photo yet!)

  3. Hummingbirds are so beautiful. We don’t have them in NZ or Japan so when I saw my first one in Costa Rica I was spellbound. Please keep on snapping and sharing your shots!
