Hummingbirds name comes from the fact that they flap their wings so fast (about 80 times per second) that they make a humming noise. Hummingbirds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. πŸ™‚


I took these photos with Canon 135 mm lens, then cropped a lot to get a close look of the bird, so the quality is not great. Wish I had my 300 mm lens with me.

  1. oh wow . . only seen them once in the wild and that was in Sacramento, and no matter how hard I tried I could not get a photograph at all! So whilst you may not be totally happy with the quality, I think these are wonderful and am very envious πŸ™‚

  2. The first time I saw hummingbirds…I stood in awe. I was visiting a friend in the USA. We don’t have them here in Australia, so it is nice to see the photos you have put up. Best wishes from Brisbane, Australia.


    • Thank you so much for your comment, Kim. Glad I could share it with you. We get to see them in part of central and east Texas, but I haven’t been able to attract them in my backyard. πŸ™‚
