Bird & Insect Tuesday

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, September 14, 2010

So, we have this hummingbird feeder right out side the window near our kitchen table. Lately our hummingbirds are very active. And we have one dominant male who has decided this is his personal feeder.

When other hummingbirds come close he will come flying out of the trees and chase them away. Then the other day he must have been tired, because he took up a perch right on top of the feeder.

He must have also been feeling purty, because he posed for over 10 minutes...

The results - (all should enlarge with a simple clickity click)

Then yesterday, this little fellow heard about the camera guy and came and visited for a while...

Well, Mickey has deer, I have hummingbirds and praying mantis'

  2. I've got all of the above, they're just a little camera shy. Nicely done.

  3. Travis Cody Says:
  4. We got a particularly tenacious woodpecker, but I haven't seen it yet...just heard it. On the bug front, you know what we have and I ain't takin' no pics of those NCELMs!

  5. CiCi Says:
  6. You were lucky to get the hummingbird to hold still that long. They are so fast. Nice pictures. Even the mantis is posing for your.
    We have four mourning doves and about 30 sparrows every day. The doves come in the morning and again in the evening. The rabbits are sporadic these days, they were here every day through the summer.

  8. It looks like the bird is posing just for you. Very cool.

    Lets see, I have some snails and a few spiders around here that I could take pics of, I'm sure. There was a family of beavers living in the "lake" on the golf course, but I never got close enough for a good pic. And now I think they moved into a better neighborhood.

  9. I've got an 11 year old human boy who won't do his homework. ;P
