Hummingbird

A hummingbird pauses atop a garden cage just waiting
 for his turn at the feeder nearby.

Catching these hyper little birds in a posed position for even a moment
 is a challenge, but my son had the patience to wait!

Very nice looking bird - I have always wanted to see a humming bird in the feather - one day maybe!

I've tried and failed many times this summer. I especially like the composition - that's a charming perch!

I love watching hummingbirds and I found there are three that have been visiting my flowers in the back yard. I'm going to get a feeder.

Jim, you will love having a feeder. ntil I got mine last year, I had no idea how many hummingbirds were around.
