Bud your pictures look so vibrant and welcoming. I can almost feel like I'm there enjoying the hummies. I like the pictures of the two hummies arguing about the perch. I have a purple potterweed but never have any visitor at it. Ah just got to love those entertaining hummies.

Amazing pictures!!
Do you find that the numbers of hummers has changed from the last year or stayed about the same?

Just wonderful. You have to spend some time to get them, I imagine. Do you use a tripod?
