Our Hummers Have Returned

It was an exciting day yesterday when I got these photos. I haven’t been at home much in the last six weeks because one of my children has not been well and I have been helping out around their house...one of those things grandmothers do so well. Every year I fret and stew that the hummingbirds will bypass us and not return, but my faith is still there. I was sitting out on our front porch looking this way and that when the missing hummers decided to come in for din-din. Somehow, I managed to get the lens on the correct setting and captured these pictures. Hope you enjoy them. It tickles me to death to get captures like these, and it makes me happy to get up a post these days. Just, please bear with me on the commenting on all of your wonderful pictures. Soon, I hope things will get back to normal, I will be at home more, and I will have time to spend on the computer. Happy Birding.







I just had to try a bit of texture.
