That pic is so cute!
I haven't seen any hummers in days.
Good point about the short winter, though.

Oooh I especially love that last one.
They really are like little jewels buzzing through the flowers.

I like not only the hummers but also the upside down images in the feeder. Now give me a minute to get my neck straightened out.

Nice photos southernnaturelover! I took quite a few pictures this year but I haven't figured out how to post them. At the busiest time this summer (late July/early August) I had to refill our 3 feeders every day. One of the photos shows 14 or so buzzing around one feeder. Ours are gone now and I really do miss them. I miss hearing them in the morning.

Ned, please, please, please learn how to post photos so that we can see the 14 hummingbirds buzzing around the feeder. I've never seen that many at one time, and that, too, would be such a treat to behold!

I was wondering the same thing. Did you ever think we'd get hit by a hurricane here in the Midwest? I sure didn't. I've still got two little beauties that are feeding daily. I'm dreading the day they leave because that means winter is on its way.

Here is my attempt at posting a photo. I hope it works.
This was taken in August. The feeder has 6 ports. You can see 14 hummers and there's another one on the backside.

Okay, obviously I have no idea how to post a photo! HELP!?

Wow! That's a great picture!


To post a photo...

1. Put your photo in Photobucket.com

2. Copy the direct link to the photo

3. When you make a post here on CD, find the little button that looks like a post card with mountains (when you put your cursor over it, it will say "insert image").

4. Paste your link into the box that pops up and hit enter. Your photo will show in your post.


Hope that helps.
