thankyou Karen, as you say, comparing the birds with the size of the flowers here really shows how agile and graceful they are. Lovely to watch.

All of your humming birds a wonderful. I love the movement of the wings here. The bleeding hearts are a great comparison to the size of this little guy. Nice work.

thanks May, glad you like it. This surprises me that you don't have the hummers where you are. But on re thinking this, - guess it's too hot there for them to have their young, so they fly north to do this each year.

I love this. Hummingbirds and bleeding hearts! Yummy capture. You lucky lady. When I lived in OR, we had so many. Now just a few in the nw part of FL, in which I live. I miss them. Fed them all the time.
