Skywatch Friday - Hummingbird On A Limb


I was strolling through the gardens with my head up in the skies looking for birds, planes and super heroes :) I was astounded and happily surprised to find this hummingbird perched on the top of a tree limb. I wanted to get a closer shot but did not want to scare the bird away. I always love catching birds with my camera lens.

beautiful Jo, hummingbirds are always a joy to watch and to listen. sometimes, i wait outside our house just to take them pictures, but sometimes, it is when I do not wait for them that they come near me, and there was one instance we both were surprised to see each other, I was picking limes and it kissed the blossom of lime very close to me. then, we had eye to eye, I was not able to take a picture, but the experience and memory of the encounter stays in me forever, maybe more than the pictures I took of them.

Very interesting bird shot! Is she/he lonely?

Ann said...

oh the hummingbird is a much better capture than any super hero :)

Thank you all so much for your comments, very much appreciated.

Betchai, What a beautiful and touching story. You are truly nature's whisperer. I love that about you. xoxo

No kidding huh? The limb is so skinny, yet it holds the weight of that bird amazingly.

Hummingbirds are the most fascinating little birds to watch. Always fun to get a shot of them. Mickie :)
