Hummingbirds




I am their humble servant.

Hanging fresh nectar every other day.

Love them.

  1. Don't know how you got them to sit still long enough to photograph them! Beautiful pictures. They are such dainty creatures.

  3. Good for you! They need the fresh nectar . . . I am envious, (in a good way) of your close up photos.

    Of late I have been sitting on the screened in porch and watching. The Hummingbird comes to feed and flits off. I then go look to see if I can find their nest. No luck so far . . . I have one of the Hummers that consistently flys to the same tree. I would love to find a nest . . .

  5. Oh my goodness Olive, you have taken gorgeous photos. I love the hummers but have yet to get a great photo of ours. We have about 6 of them and I have to fill the feeder every day. They are letting me get right up to the feeder now as they buzz around me so I should be able to get an excellent picture soon. Aren't they so special?

  6. Olive, you are their servant. I don't change mine that often. I bet my hummers would love to come to your house.

  9. What an amazing photo, Olive! I had a hummer buzz me at my front door a few weeks ago. It startled me as I was unlocking the front door. Yikes!

  11. Great photo Olive! It's always awesome when you view a hummingbird when it's standing still...and even more amazing you captured the image.

  14. Do you make your own liquid? And I have ants all over the one I just hung. How do I avoid that?

    1. Yes, i make the nectar. Rinse the feeder off prior to hanging. Do not hang a feeder from a tree or near a tree. Mine are on a deck. Also the sugar to water ratio is one to four. One cup of sugar to four of water. Bring to a boil and let it softly boil for two minutes.

  15. Gosh, it's so nice to see them still at your feeders instead of the way I usually see them. I'm sure they are grateful for you.
