Still seeing female hummers at the feeder, but the males have apparently headed south.
Male Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Wild Bird Wednesday
sweet little fellow.
Taking a well-deserved rest I see. Great shot, Pat.
Females must be a lot hardier than males (no surprise I suppose) and don’t mind the chilly temps.
Great photo of a very beautiful bird.
What a handsome guy!
This is a stunning photograph, Pat, and he is so handsome.
Beautiful photo! My hummingbird feeders have been extremely busy the past couple of weeks. They’ll be here in the deep south until October then it will be time for their long journey across the Gulf of Mexico.
What a beautiful photo! We’ll miss them, won’t we?
Oh look how sweetly that little guy is perched there. Very nice shot of him.
Such a shame. Hurry back soon. Lovely shot.
Beautiful hummer, I will be sad to see them leave!
I read long ago that the males leave so much earlier than the female. You wonder why that is. I love this close up.
This ~ Is ~ Stunning!
beautiful bird! 🙂
What a beauty, Pat. I have never been fast enough to snap a photo of the hummers that visit my garden. How do you do it?
This is lovely.
I love the Hummingbirds, so many types.
Absolutely beautiful, both bird and shot.
Love the detail in his feathers! The red ones almost look like beautiful scales!
I’m seeing less at my feeder also. This photo is great. They’re so fun to watch…
I’m not certain of the behavior of hummingbirds, but the males tend to leave my feeders soon after the babies hatch. “Absent fathers” perhaps? 😉
A very handsome little fellow.
What a beautiful little bird… lovely image.
Pat, very pretty! I think all of ours have gone too! We had one that stayed with us all winter last year. Hope he comes back!
Very nice bird, exquisite art! Beautiful photo!
What a beauty ! Lovely shot !
That’s awesome! Fantastic perch!
It’s always sad to see them go. I’m so glad we have ours throughout the year.
I love their little feet – their little everything! The ruby-throats have invaded black-chinned territory here in south Texas! They’ll soon be heading across the gulf. Amazing little creatures. Great shot of the male!
