Dance of the Hummingbird

Winged Jewel

With wings spun of silver and hearts of gold,
These tiny creatures our hearts behold.
With angelic features and colors so bright,
Make even the heaviest heart seem light.
The magical way they flit through the sky,
They appear, then vanish in the blink of an eye.
They're sending a message for us to retrieve,
Anything's possible for those who believe!

This evening I watched two hummingbirds performing quite the aerial display.  It was done high in the air and hard to tell if it was two males fighting over territory or a mating ritual.  Part of the dance was one flying straight up and back down again in a U formation several times.  This took a lot of energy and a trip to our nectar feeder became necessary.


  1. Judith, Stunning shots of the hummingbirds. They are so welcome in the garden.

  2. Wow Judith... That is a stunning photo! Those tiny little toes!

  3. What wonderful photos, and such clear details. I like the out of focus spider in the first one, too.

  4. Wonderful shots, love the look of concentration on the face of the first hummer

  5. What beautiful photos! 'Winged jewel' is such an apt description of these gorgeous little birds.

  6. Judith, these HummerPhotos are Stunning. Such beautiful color and stop action timing. I visited your blog for Mosaic Monday and put you on my Sidebar of PhotoBlog so I could come back and visit longer. So glad I did today to see your fabulous photography. I'm also a new Follower, so I'll see again soon.
