About This Image

Hummingbird, Rufous female, bathing in the mist from the mister spray, (you can see the mist if you look at background) that we put up on the fence (specially for them : ) and the other small birds, who also love the mist.
The hummer rests on a Rhodo leaf, which gives you an idea of the size of the hummingbird.

They also drink the droplets that gather on the rhodo leaves, and the hummers and other very small birds slide around on the leaves as they try to bathe in the accumulated water on leaves : ) I like the white "underwear" feathers. Captured while sitting on the front patio

That means no errors, no spelling and grammatical errors. Your own situation in my eyes its much preferable to learn the steps to making passive return. The links may or may not come from Google high page ranked sites.

that's nice of you, Larry, thanks very much. Am happy you enjoyed the photo. We are looking forward to their return in a few weeks, hopefully. We do have an Anna's hummer around here now, but it doesn't seem to feed here that often, not sure why. Saw it at the front feeder today tho', but it just feeds and zooms away, so as there are no flowers blooming yet, we don't get much chance to take photos of it.

You are one talented lady. This is gorgeous. Such a cute little birdie, and you have captured it brilliantly!

thanks Alex, - the little bird looks quite vulnerable there like that. This is one of the clearest shots taken of the birds in the shrubbery. By being on the patio for this shot, was just that bit closer, compared with sitting at the open window, so it made all the difference to the detail.

Spectacular. Love the detail. You really captured the moment. I feel like I am there.

Hi Janice, thanks, yes they are so small. Thought that would give a good idea of the size, compared to a Rhodo leaf.

Great shot. Gosh are they small.

hi Fella, yeah, I am so happy with it, just love it, and can't believe I fretted so long about "should I get it?" LOL. It was really "thanks to you" that I got it, and knew you'd be happy for me : ) I was so worried about not being able to figure out how to use it, but it was fine.

lol, Carol. They probably do bathe when you don't see them, on the leaves in the bushes etc. They slip and slide around, cute to watch.

Really cute,I guess ours are dirty little birds you never see them taking a bath.
