Yay! Finally Got A Hummingbird Picture!

I have 4 hummingbird feeders and there is one that gets the most activity. It's a mini size feeder that I got a Lowe's that you stick in your potted plants. So I parked my lawn chair out in the middle of our backyard waited for him to come. It didn't take long, about 5 minutes. So I sat there for about 20 minutes and got a bunch of pics. He would come by every 5 minutes. Then I weeded out the best one to post on here.














I took a few more pics too. Here is one of the front of our house. I like to use lots of pots of flowers around my yard. Don't exactly have the best soil for planting. We have lots of clay in our area.














While I was sitting out in the backyard. Just under the shed was one of the baby bunnies watching me. They sure are growing fast!














Then these pictures are of some of my most favorite geraniums.

Beautiful photos. I need to do my yard so I can entice more wildlife, too much open area.

You got a good shot. She is gorgeous! I finally got one the other day too. They moved so fast you have to sit and wait like you did.
Love your geraniums too. One of my favorite annuals.
I also wanted to tell you that your pumpkin heads are adorable!
You come up with some of the best creations!
Take care!

How cool are those pictures of the hummingbird and the bunny! Hummingbirds are hard to capture unless you have a camera in hand when they visit.
