The 2012 hummingbird season was so different in so many ways. I didn’t have to many hummingbirds, maybe two or three in the same time. I was quite sad for a while, but the end of the summer brought me the best hummingbird gift.
The first hummingbird arrived earlier, on May 3rd. I have seen him late in the evening at my million bells hanging basket. What a delight!
He wasn’t too friendly, and for sure didn’t like me taking photos. With some luck I was able to get a few photos.
My boy became a regular at the feeders. It was a bit cold and rainy, and only a few flowers in bloom, and the feeders were at the most used.
Every morning I looked at the window hoping I will see him. In the sun, his beautiful gorget was shinning like a flame.
One day, another male showed up, I recognize him after the white spot in his wing. And the fight over the feeders begun. I place the feeders far away from each other, so they can’t see each other and have a good nectar snack any time.
Spring time, hummingbird time, a wonderful show to watch.
