A New Years Day raspberry -
Taken outside my daughters house in western Oregon, where the Annas hummingbirds winter.

This little female was taking a break in the evergreen photinia hedge.

Great shot. Love those hummingbirds. Ours have gone way southfor awhile.
You come on over for the black-eyed peas. There's a place waiting for you at the table.

Ahhhh! I see the imagination of God in that little bird's tongue!! And body and face and wings!

Amazing capture, Pamela.

HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEETS! I've missed you (and everyone else, for that matter).

Blessings now and always :).
excellent photo - we have hummers that make their way through - going to AZ I imagine, maybe Hawaii - anywhere but here... but hey always return. We even had a Bumblebee hummer this last fall. Once they return, we'll share ...
Do you get the Rufus?

Sorry about the double exposure - its a Mac thing - I am still learning - see my blog....
What an amazing picture! Mom and I went out to the lake yesterday to see if we could spy any eagles. We only saw one big 'Grandpappy'. It was cold and very windy so our eagle spying didn't last very long.

Beautiful picture Pamela!! I miss birds. They have all left for warmer climates. Well... okay we still see sea gulls when we're driving near the dump. Not quite the same thrill there ya know?
Chikai said…
i have always wanted to see hummingbirds with my own eyes but i guess it's impossible because we don't have them here in my country.

you're very lucky to have taken this shot. :)

hope you can check out my WW entry. ;)

What a great picture and your caption topped it off. We miss the birds during the winter. Hope you are well and doing good. Happy New Year.
Candi said…
Wow--that is amazing--great shot!!

Yes, there were not many visitors at all. At one point I was taking a picture of the back of Mt. Vernon and some people were about to be in my shot and my oldest ran into it. He didn't have time to get out of it before they were in it, so he hid behind the pillar...LOL!! Pretty quick thinking for a 5 year old!!
Vicki / Cagney said…

Jodi said…
It was only 2 degrees here this morning... I can only dream of when the hummingbirds will return!!
Devon said…
Beautiful Pamela, you sure have an eye and talent for taking the most wonderful pictures!
How do you manage to so often capture these busy creatures when they're still?! Amazing.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should add a copyright to my photos... I've noticed a few others doing that of late.

What a fabulous picture!!! Did you take it yourself?
coloursofdawn said…

Robert said…
What a fantastic shot. Very nice work!
Amanda said…
What are the odds you'd get a shot like that!! Love it mom!!
I just read online news about the damaging winds your way. I hope you are safe and didn't lose trees.
my4kids said…
Wow great catch there Pamela!
Jenni said…
Excellent shot! I keep wondering how people get these bird shots. Do you sit still and wait a long, long time? Am I too impatient or just too slow? (I know I am slow!) Hummingbirds move so very fast, and they seem to be in constant motion. It's incredible to see one actually sitting still!
MarmiteToasty said…
When I was in Maine during the summer, I so desparately wanted to see a real humming bird, so me matie Sharkie hung sugar water feeders outside the kitchen windows, and within a few hours the birds came....... gorgeous just gorgeous, we just dont have them over here.... lovely photo..
