Photo of the Week - Hummingbird on Its Perch

Hummingbirds started arriving in our area last week. One feeder is already out and filled with sugar water for these precious birds. I will plan out some new photo shoots in the months ahead. In the meantime, I dusted off one of my archived files from late September and performed a fresh edit for your enjoyment.


  1. What a beautiful capture, Donna. It's still very cold here for them but they should start arriving in early May. I will have to get my feeders ready soon too. Hugs. Pam

  2. Oh my, I can see every little feather Donna. It is beautiful!
    Now I wish I had remembered to pack my feeder.
    Take care-Kimberly

  3. That's a great photo, Donna! I was sitting outside this morning listening to the birds. It's such a pleasure to see them again.

    Prayers for you and Jim this morning as always.

  4. Beautiful picture of a beautiful little bird!

  5. Oh Donna...what an awesome shot! The hummers are out here too in all of their glory...I just love them. It's the lack of the ability to photograph these guys and other birds with my p&s that is keeping me longing for that DSLR! One day soon.... :)

  6. Thanks for the reminder to get out my feeders!
    Gorgeous photo, Donna! I love that you love these little guys...it gives me a chance to see them up close and personal! :)

  7. Such a beautiful tiny bird - you really caught the details of its fabulous wings Donna. I must dig my feeder out to hang on the porch soon.

    Love and hugs to you and JIm - Mary x

  8. thank you I do enjoy the fresh look. They are wondrous creatures.

  9. we won't have hummingbirds for a while, the prediction is snow flurries for tonight.

  10. Very nice! I can't seem to attract them here. I got a moth that moved like a hummingbird last year. Forgot the name of it.
    The intricacy of this photo is just amazing!

  11. It's beautiful. I've never been real successful at attracting hummingbirds.

  12. This is simply fantastic dear Donna....Beautiful!

  13. Amazing! One time a hummingbird was trapped in my screened porch and I had to pick it up to free him. He was so weak I just walked up to him. I cannot express what magic it was to hold that little creature in my hands. Absolutly beautiful shot!

  14. É a minha primeira visita. Estou aprendendo um pouco mais sobre fotografia e visitei todos os blogs citados no "A Photo Challenge". Todos muito interessantes.
    Gostei muito das dicas sobre fotografia e voltarei mais vezes para aprender mais.
    Parabéns e obrigada!
    Um abraço do Brasil!
