It is difficult to imagine that she is no bigger then my thumb.

PLEASE pick a favorite and include the # in your comment.
Thank you sooooo much as I really am unsure.

These are straight out of the camera, they have not been cropped!!!

I have taken about 200 pictures of her today. The other birds are getting mad....
I may have to find a new obsession!!!!!


  1. Oh my gosh, Debbie. These are all adorable! I think I'll have to pick #3 as my favortie. While it doesn't show her all off I just love the way she is looking at you!

  2. My favorite is #3 as well. She looks like she has connected with you. Hugs!

  3. My goodness, I scrolled through these several times and am still struggling to find my favourite they are all so good. But I think my favourite would be number 3 as well as she is giving you such a cute look.

  4. #3, definitely! sang out to me in an instant!

  5. Oh Debbie, this is so difficult to do. I am stuck between #2 and #3. I am going to go with #3 simply because I love those little beaks!

  6. Oh NUMBER 3!!!!
    What a cute little head looking at me so puzzled:)))

  7. I know what you mean about the obsession. I do the same thing....take hundreds of shots of the same subject in an attempt to get that perfect shot.

    These are all so good Debbie. I's hard to choose a favorite, but I love that look she is giving you in #3.

  8. I think # 1 Is my favourite.Keep in shooting,the other birds will have there day.

  9. #3 for me too! That look is absolutely priceless!!!

  10. I can't pick between #3 and #8 she looks confident in one and graceful in the other. I love the photos.

  11. #3 definitely is my favourite!

  12. I'll jump on the #3 bandwagon - cause it's so unusual to catch their eye like that - I mean... looking right at you! And I was startled by the 'no bigger than my thumb' comment...I think the ones at my mother in laws are much bigger. Is this a baby, or just a small one?

  13. I agree on #3. You have quite a friend there. We once had a little hummer that would sit on our finger and sip sugar water from a lid. It was during a drought and there was a big lack of flowers and water.

  14. I can't decide between #1 and #8!

    Thank you for showing us Pier Village! I have seen it in the drawing board stages, in the newspaper, but have not been down to Long Branch in a dog's age to see it live and in person. Agree w/ you about that Springsteen statue!

  15. Number 3 looks like the landslide winner. They are all fantastic!!

  16. These are great! I've tried to capture images of a hummingbird before and it's not easy! They move so quick! I really like the shot where the bird is looking at the camera and has his head cocked a little... so cute!
