Well the rush is on around here. The next few weeks are a flurry of activity until they fade into the cool late fall skies.....sigh

You are reminding me that I need to get out there photographing, before it's too late!

Tony- Great captures. This is a bitter-sweet time of hummer season as even though we are seeing more and more hummers it is because they are on the move southward, so enjoy while we have them.

Beautiful photos Tony, thanks.

We've had good hummingbird activity lately, but today is too quiet, so I'm thrilled to see these photos!

Last photo; possible conversation between the birds.

I wonder who won the argument?

Very nice, Tony! I finally got to take some pictures a couple of days the past or so since my activity has really picked up.

Activity is so strong right now had to add another feeder. If things go as they have in the last few years in two weeks I will be reducing my feeders but until then the extra feeder will help.
