A Hummer in Silhouette

I captured this little hummer early one summer morning a couple of years ago. He had stopped to rest amongst the branches of our Lady Banks Rose, and I love the way he and the branches were silhouetted against the early morning sky.

Notice his tongue sticking out in this one ...


Sometimes silhouettes, like shadows, can be more interesting than the actual images. I'm so glad I was able to capture this little hummingbird as he passed my way that morning.

These little jewels are such fun to watch! I like the picture with his tongue sticking out!

Add me to the "glad he passed your way" contingent---I've always had such a heart-spot for the little jewels, and sometimes, despite their delicate birdness, I think of the swift little hovering creatures as more bug than bird.

Wonderful images for this not-too-hot morning!
