Ruby Throated Hummingbird

For this weeks World Bird Wednesday  and  Wordless Wednesday

we still have some of the avian pixies here, but we're a lot further south and a lot warmer than you too. sweet dragons and damsels!

Barb said...

Oh, awesome capture of that hummingbird and all those dragonflies, etc!

You have seen some dragonflies that are new to me.

Springman said...

Our skies are full of remarkable creatures as your fine photographs show. Take care Eileen, Cheers!

Debbie said...

mick said...

Great photo of the hummingbird. Beautiful colors on all the other flying creatures too.

Riet said...

Your macro photo's are beautiful Eileen. All so very clear. And I love the hummingbird.

Elaine said...

Love all your varieties of dragonflies!

Bob Bushell said...

I would be sad as well, the Hummingbirds are splendid.

Those dragons are excellent Eileen.

Hi there - the hummer is great but the dragonflies are even better. They are a real treat to see close up.

Love the dragonfly photos-such a nice variety.

We only have the ruby throated hummingbird here in Michigan, so I was amazed on a trip out west to see the variety they have out there....all kinds of colors. They sure are neat to see.

Marvelous closeups. I love it when humming birds perch.

I have never seen a green dragonfly.
Great captures.

Gattina said...

These mini birds are so cute ! I have only seen them in a zoo !

My hummers are almost all gone now too. I so look forward to their return in the spring. The dragon fly shots are amazing also. I have spiders making webs all over my garden now. Every fall I start seeing them.
Do you use a macro lens for your pictures? It is my next purchase.
Thanks for stopping by today

I know you miss the hummers. Me too, and I only saw them for 3 weeks.

It's my first visit here via World Bird Wednesday. I really enjoyed your photos, especially your hummer. You seem to have a real knack for quick moving creatures!

I'm sad also...as I don't get them over here in the UK..
Beautiful images of all your wonderful wildlife.

I love all the tiny creatures that you've captured so well here!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Interesting that the males have left already. What? They can't stand the cool fall days as well?

Wonderful pictures! I love the dragonflies almost as much as the bird.

GrammyMouseTails said...

Your female looks all fluffed up, as if she feels the chill arriving soon. I miss them a lot too. I can only capture them through my old grungy double pane patio window with a plastic stormer over it, so they are never clear. I have yet been able to catch a dragon fly on the loose either. Yours are beautiful! Faythe @ GMT

caite said...

fantastic shots..I can't pic a favorite, they are all so nice.

Carol said...

Fantastic captures, Eileen! Love that hummingbird, and the dragon flies. The spider has such pretty color and pattern, but it gives me the shivers :)

Jean said...

Eileen, I feel your sentiment about our soon to be leaving Hummers. Sigh...
Love the photos!!!

SandyCarlson said...

These are utterly amazing, Eileen. Thanks!

diane b said...

These are all fabulous pics. It is so hard to capture these critters which move so fast. I love the blue and green dragon flies. Where to the hummingbirds go for winter?

Jen said...

That green dragonfly is gorgeous!! Never seen anything like it!

forgetmenot said...

Amazing shots, Eileen. Mickie :)

Larry said...

Wonderful shot of the female Ruby throat Eileen! One thing about all the boys being gone is there is much more cooperation at the feeders ;-)

The dragonfly shots are exceptional too! Love that green one.

Was reading Crevecoueur's letters with students and realized for the first time that hummingbirds are unique to the Americas. Now wonder our German friends were so amazed to see them in our yard...
