All A Buzz!

This was last years Photo’s, I thought I’d share because I just love these photo’s…I wasn’t as lazy, I actually went outside and took the photo’s……froze, but suffered! lol….

This is the time of the year I love, the arrival of the Rufus Hummingbird!

Just this past week they have arrived and I had my camera ready and snapped away! I have 2 small feeders, one on each side of my covered font porch I sit in my chair not quite in the middle, so I can only focus on one feeder at a time unless I move as slow as a snail and can change focus in a heart beat! NOT!

I missed a wonderful shot of a Rufus Hummingbird flying onto the porch and hovering about 6 inch’s from my dogs face checking to see if he was a threat while flashing his red neck at Buggz (the dog), I seriously don’t think Buggz even noticed! The bird was there about 5 seconds but by the time I got the camera ready he had determined the dog wasn’t a threat and continued on to the feeder! It only took me about 1 1/2 hours to take all these great photo’s so please ENJOY!

A female Rufus, can you see her tongue?

As it got darker out,it got cooler and my hands were freezing, this was one of my last outside pic’s for the night.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did taking them!
