Wow, collectiing hummingbirds, live ones! Great.

Sayre said...

I think my mom and dad collect those - I always see tons of them when I go out to the farm to visit. That's so cool that they don't fly away from you!

Amanda said...

I'm surprised they didn't try to get nectar from your boobs! :)

Your shirt accents this picture nicely. Maybe you and dad should put a little greenhouse/aviary back there. Then you could collect hummingbirds that came in to eat. Of course, you'd have a new collection every day because you'd have to let them go.

Hummingbirds are my favorite bird next to bald eagles, but it takes so damn many of them to make a meal. Looks like you have a good start. When’s supper?

Jo Beaufoix said...

Wow, they are so beautiful. And your daughter's comment made me giggle. :D

Christine said...

What a fabulous photo. I am just amazed at how those hummers are so still. That's so cool they don't fly away from you, to be able to get so close to them.

Yeah, it does look like they are waiting for their meal!! :)

PAT said...

How cute is that Pamela. Wish I could get a Hummingbird to light on my finger!;-)

I know how much you love your Hummingbirds :)

Alison said...

great picture Pamela...that would be an interesting collection!!

storyteller said...

Lovely photo! Delightful ‘collectible’ idea. I love to watch hummingbird in my yard … though the only ‘feeders’ I have are ‘natural ones’ … citrus trees and flowers. I’m always amazed when the little things come to ‘bathe’ in the hose spray while I’m watering the front yard ;--)

My Fun Monday post is at Small Reflections as usual.
Hugs and blessings,

ellen b said...

Wow! They stayed there with your hands on the feeder?! You have some very calm hummingbirds there...

mjd said...

The hummingbirds are great. My sister-in-law collects them in the same way. I would like to collect the tiny birds, but I might confuse them with robins. (he,he)

karisma said...

This is the best collection I have seen so far! Way to go!

Susie said...

How wonderful that you could get so close to these delightful little visitors to your garden!

Hummingbirds and baby owls in the same week. You are having more fun then us now. I like your kind of collection. I haven't had a hummer on my finder yet, but I did have a butterfly on my finger today.

IamwhoIam said...

You do have a nack with our feather friends. To have them let you so close :>)

Faye said...

How'd you do that??? By the way, you have beautiful eyes Pamela. Don't you wish we could just chuck those hateful glasses?

Kila said...

Wow, a photo of you! Great photo. All that red. Are you the "bird whisperer"?

Gattina said...

My cats would be pleased with your collection !

the planet of janet said...

this is an AWESOME collection. you win the prize today ;-)

Peter said...

Great "collection" Pamela, nice photo too.
BTW, the bark from most of our "gum trees" only has a smell when it's wet.

Kailani said...

If only . . .

They're such beautiful creatures!

Olive said...

Interesting collection and innovative post. Thanks for sharing your photo of hummingbirds with us.

DesLily said...

nikki said...

WHat a great picture. I hung my hummingbird feeder last week. I hope some come over my way. They are fascinating to watch.

The Rotten Correspondent said...

very, very cool!

Joy T. said...

I COMPLETELY forgot about signing up for Fun Monday. Darn it anyway and this one seems like it was fun! That picture is something else. Hummingbirds have to be the prettiest little birds in the world!

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

here in the Sonoran desert, our favorite place "the desert museum" has a hummingbird garden humming with different breeds and varieties. It is quite an experience!

Very Cool birds! Are they birds or insects, really?

susaninva said...

You're the Hummingbird Whisperer!

BarnGoddess said...

Pamela, those little beauties are besotted w/ you :)

Lil Mouse said...

Mariposa said...

Wow...humming birds...how cool is that!

Thanks for playing Pam...and sorry for the late visit!

Cruise Mom said...

Thanks for commenting at my place, and your collection is much prettier than mine!

Patience-please said...

Nah.... really?

Desert Songbird said...

They are fascinating creatures, aren't they?

lisa marie said...

That is so cool! I bet you felt amazing! I just wish to see some more, it's been ages since I've seen a hummer.

Bunny Trails said...

Wow! I had no idea that hummingbirds would willingly come so close to humans. Very cool!! :D

Melanie said...

Wow!! That is so amazing. I didn't realize they would let you get so close. Amazing!!

Our Happy Happenings

dawn said...

I think they are amazing. If you go to Canadian Crafter on my blog roll, and scroll down a few posts, she has some videos and photos of the hummingbirds just outside her house. They come in her house sometimes and ride her hand out. She has great closeups. Sorry I didn't think to tell you sooner.

Debs said...

I love hummingbirds. That is a great pic! :) I am going to have to try holding my feeder for the hummers. I can stand under my feeder and they still come to get their sweet treat.

Susie Q said...

Now, how cool is THIS!!! Great image! I would love to collect hummingbirds too...maybe baby robins.
Chipmunks, rabbits and pandas.

The house would get a tad messy but who cares right?

Love,
Sue
