Humming Along

The Hummingbirds love July!

They jealously stake out and guard their territory. 

That territory includes a variety of plants like Agastache.

They preen.

They frown!

They eat.

They watch.

They 'tell off' intruders!

They are amazing aerialists.

They are too cute for words.

They are beauty in flight!

I loooove hummingbirds! I still remember watching one in my grandmother's garden. I wish we lived where hummingbirds live. So cute!

At my moms old home in KY she would have 9 hummingbirds that hung around her feeder all day long, all summer. In Northern Indiana, I'm lucky if I see two all season long though. I have a garden and two feeders, sigh. I think it may be because Im in a populated area and theres lots of gardens and feeders all around? I have no idea. I miss them an awful lot. Lovely pics, thanks for sharing!

Wonderful pictures on amazing creatures!! Our hummingbirds spend more time chasing each other away from the feeders than feeding. No wonder they are so little - LOL!

Love these little guys. :)
We haven't had hardly ANY hummingbirds around this summer. Very strange and I'm not sure why.
