Garden Guest: Hummingbird 2015

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.
 
If you would like to see more, please take a look at my Gardening Page
 

You probably recognize this little one as a hummingbird.  They seldom sit to eat.  I'm so glad the camera was close by when this one was being still.

  1. Hummingbirds are the best!! My grandma has a feeder on her porch and has so many. She refills it almost every other day. I really should hang one too . I love them!! Great picture of the still one.

  3. You take the best photos!!! These little guys are so hard for me to capture. Great job!

    Our Master Gardener group is encouraging us to set up these Certified Wildlife Habitats and since we'll be building our retirement home on our farm, we will do it. Thanks for posting and getting the word out.

  9. Hummingbirds are simply amazing and smart tiny creatures! My hummingbirds let me know when it is time to refill their bottle by coming really close to the window and hover to get my attention.
    Your pictures are beautiful!

  10. We put up some hummingbird feeders this year, and have been blessed with some beautiful visitors. I just haven't been able to capture a picture of our pretty guests however, but I will keep trying. Thanks for sharing your great photos!
