One of the most exciting things to discover on moving to Canada was the tiny, wee Hummingbird. The first time I saw one I thought it was an over-sized moth hyped up on sugar-filled sports drink!
Hummingbird is the One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells this week.
This capture of one of the first Hummingbirds of this season coincided very well with this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge (WPC) of MOTION don’t you think?!
Looking at the wing on the other side of its body, its nothing but a blur. I know I’m extremely biased but I really do think the Hummingbird has to be one of nature’s most unique creations!
Whilst I was outside this afternoon I heard above me what sounded like a phone vibrating only in stereo. I knew immediately what it was… my hummingbirds were back!
I wasted no time finding our hummingbird feeder, filling it then hanging it outside. Within an hour we had company. This year as you can see I’m conducting an experiment with the red liquid to see if in fact it attracts more birds than the clear sugary liquid.
I was soooooo excited at the return of the hummingbirds I was bouncing around the kitchen like a labrador puppy. Of course, the children simply rolled their eyes at me and asked… “mum, how much longer?”
