"Hummingbird"

(by Never Shout Never) Hummingbird - The Summer EP


Hummingbird by Never Shout Never on Grooveshark


I've really been wanting a good camera lately, because the hummingbirds are here! And with the cameras that I have, it's pretty much impossible to get a good picture of them flitting around the yard. I've taken some anyway, because I just can't help myself. I thought I'd share them with y'all, so just imagine them a little crisper, shall we?

This cute little guy has been playing games with me for awhile now...

I see him nearly every time I look out my bedroom window. He likes to sit on my neighbor's tree that hangs over the corner of my yard. Then he'll fly into my yard & drink nectar from my flowers before flying around the house behind mine & landing on my neighbor's tree again.
He really likes both types of salvia that I have in my garden ~ the purple (above) & the coral (below):

I may or may not have sat very still in my back yard, hoping he'd get a little closer to me. I really enjoy watching this little guy! :)
I know it's not the best picture, but doesn't he look like he's enjoying life? Ah, simple and free! I see him & think of a line from one of my favorite Abby Baker songs, "Feeling like a hummingbird singing to the trees..." :)
