  3. Love everything about this shot Robin. The little star of course the Hummingbird and his/her shadow. The lovely soft pink of the Impatiens and the composition (even though you probably had to take your moment fairly swiftly), delightful image.

  7. Incredible! my favorite, they are gone now, for me here in Pa. Last summer I called the Summer of Hummingbirds, as so many gathered as I pondered in awe. Thanks for this.

  13. Whatever you do, don't wear red flower eyeglasses when your around hummingbirds.

    They'll suck the juice right out of your eyes!
