Hummingbird Feeding Fun

Posted on July 21, 2011

Here are a few photos I shot today of some hummingbirds that were feeding off my feeder. Don’t worry if it looks empty as I am using clear juice for them and it’s just below the red rim so you can’t see the juice line.

These birds just love my homemade hummingbird juice. This is the second year that I have been making up my own home brew for them. Here is the link to my homemade hummingbird juice recipe that I posted last year.

I actually had 3 birds drinking all at the same time but couldn’t get a picture of them. They move so fast that by the time I try and click the picture, they have moved.

Here is a great shot showing the beautiful back of this hummingbird. She’s just so pretty with her yellow spots.

Another photo of the same bird drinking from my hummingbird feeder.

One last photo of one of the “girls” posing for the camera. They are just such beautiful creatures. Now I am off to make another batch of my brew for them as I’m sure the feeder is nearly empty now.

    Ooo! Thank you for those photos – we don’t have hummingbirds in Australia so it’s so lovely to see them!

    Nothing special, I just used the zoom on my camera. I had to take lots of pictures to get just these few as the hummingbirds move so quickly. Glad you liked my photos.

    Great photos. It is really special being able to take pictures of the birds and bees that find their way into our gardens. Cheers.
