Nesting Hummer

While visiting the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum and their amazing Hummingbird House, I had a great time watch the various hummers buzz around. But it’s always fascinating to see these active birds when they stop. So glad for the Museum; so grateful for this shot.

A Full Nest

Two Anna’s Hummingbird nestlings on July 2. They fledged on July 8, 2015

Hummingbird Haven

The nest was located within the Boyce Thompson Arboretum (an Arizona State Park) and a wonderful place to observe birds. Taken with Tamron 150mm – 600mm lens.

It’ll be OK little sister.

I had been filming this nest for 5 weeks and fledge day was near. I watched them try, hesitate and try again, but they just were not able to fly. I didn’t take my camera off them for many hours and during that time, this precious moment appeared.
