Flyday is an homage to what our feathered friends do best, fly.

  1. eileeninmd, thank you very much. I'm wondering if since we have had such a warm and ealy spring if they will show up sooner than years past. I'm hoping! I've already got the nectar feeders cleaned and ready.

    I can't for these little ones to make their way up to Ontario.

  6. When you can capture their expression, it's always a smile to see how they take what they are doing so seriously.

  10. Linnnn, chicken and Algis, thanks to you all for the views, rates and comments. I just love these little guys. We only have one kind here regularly in the summer and I can't hardly wait for them to arrive!

  11. Lovely image, Robin! My ornamental crab apple tree is showing some early leaves, but I wouldn't expect Ruby-throated Hummingbirds to come a whole month early. Make sure you take a photo if you see one this early and submit it to eBird for documentation.

  12. Hilke, ABSOLUTELY! I am a dedicated eBird poster, too. So, not to worry, if I see them, they go into Cornell's data base. But, if they showed up today, the poor little things would freeze in mid air. And, I don't mean photographically, either! :) I am hoping to see them very early this year, though. thanks for the view and comment.

  13. Jali, thank you. And I agree: great mouse pad. I have a mouse pad of my own bird images which I love.

  16. I don't know how I missed this post. Beautiful!!! What lens did you use for this picture? Do you by any chance know what aperture and shutter speed you used for this picture?
