Happy Mom’s Day; The Hummingbirds are Back!


Thought I’d toss up a couple shots of our most recent guests.

male & female calliope hummingbirds (Stellula calliope)

To all good Mom’s out there Happy Mother’s Day!

Footnote: I’d like to say upfront I did not handle any of the birds here nor did I photo-shop – I just fed them. If any photographer would like to see my, not so elegant, set up just drop me a note, I’d be happy to show them.

  1. Great shots, I love these little guys, but I won’t even attempt a shot at them..not enough patience on my part !!

  2. Great photos! I agree w/Bernie – hummingbirds are tough to photograph!
