More of a documenting shot than art :laughing: We had very unseasonably cool weather with rain yesterday and the hummers were unusually willing to share :wow:

At several points there were over 15 hummers all jockeying for a space at the 10 seater feeder :love:

This is taken through the open window with me about eight feet away!



more hummers here: [link]

I thought the herd would thin a bit as summer came on...but noooo, I have still a bunch :laughing: And now they're dependent on my sugar water because there aren't any natural flowers blooming as things have been so dry! They go through about 6 cups of nectar a day - the lushes :giggle:

prior to this I'd only ever seen photos of the swarm :laughing:

my daughter was telling me today that come fall I'd better stop feeding them to encourage some to migrate...but I'm not sure if Anna's do that!!

I thought it was a "rare" occurrence due to the rain - but it is happening almost every evening now...things have dried out and they're needing the nectar because there aren't enough flowers...or it is easier to come to the "restaurant" :giggle:
