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. 🙂


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.


You don’t want to miss Pit’s “Our First Fawn of the Year“.  Beautiful and precious photos of the fawn and its mama.

  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 🙂

  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. 🙂
