Astonishing mama hummer ~

Thanks once again to the eagle eye (pun intended) of artist, photographer, and "Nature Observer Extraordinaire," Cita Scott, I can share a series of astonishing close ups of the morning routine of a beautiful mother hummingbird. Here in today's photo she has brought her babies some breakfast. Tune in tomorrow for the next step...

    I have 4 feeders in my backyard and sometimes when I'm watering plants the hummers will buzz me to get out of the way! And if I stand perfectly still I can see them up close. Their colors are always breathtaking ~ jewels.
