Now you see me … Now you don’t…

Blogging University, In my Garden, Photography

They are heard before they are seen. Flying by at neck-breaking speed; with the steady hum of their rapidly beating wings; they always seem to be in a hurry; sampling a sip of nectar here, and another sip there.

Suddenly a competitor arrives and the battle begins. Zooming up and down through the air, facing off like arch enemies. Noisily defending their territory, long beaks clanking against each other in moments. They battle, until one of them leaves.

Why can’t they share all the flowers in the garden?

  1. We just purchased our first hummingbird feeder. Excited to see what happens this Spring.
    I like the gallery of images. Is this a widget or is this a self-hosted site on


  2. In your media library is an option to create a gallery. Once you have selected your photos, you click on create gallery and it gives you options such as slide show, tiles, etc.. It also lets you select the size. I just learned how to do it here last week. Once you do it, it’s easy. Let me know if you create a slide show. I’d like to see it.

  3. What kind of camera are you using ? It’s superb! Such vibrancy, I was waiting for the birds to move.


    • I generally use auto. They are so quick and all over the yard that I always think I’ll miss them entirely. That way all I have to do wait near their favorite spots. Thanks for stopping by.

    My humming birds are sucking up my flowers now. I was trying to get them to use a new feeder, the old one broke and they didn’t like the new one. No worries now, there are plenty of flowers…
