Hummingbird w Hibiscus

I was outside for hours today trying to get this picture in good lighting. The hummingbirds wouldn't come near it while I was outside. I set it up in front of my fav. window spot, and there you have it. I don't know why I even try to get them outside! I guess it's variety. My window spots a winner, I guess I just get bored with it a little.

Lynne-Copy & paste the above link onto your browser. Once page opens scroll down and click on video clip. It shows this guy hand feeding them. The whole clip is on YouTube...under handing feeding hummimngbirds. It's a really cool video, check it out. These birds are about 3 inches.
Thanks Janey :)

Thats phenominal, thanks Tasteyg. Just imagine it, its so small, there are bigger spiders and beetles and moths and butterflies than that.

Wizzbang- They are very tiny, but they are so fast that they act kind of fearless. Did you check out the video on YouTube? It's adorable, the hummingbird uses the guys thumb as a perch to rest for a moment :) Apparently the guy in the video is selling ($30) it as a demo to handfeed hummers.

He and the flowers are beautiful. His wings almost disappear with the speed that he "hums" along. Nice shot.
