  1. Thank you so much Sue!

  2. Extremely fortunate! I’ve just observed it once before…I’m astounded at how no place for her body there is, and how uncovered she is!

    • Thank you so much for the comment!

      I too am amazed she’s so exposed! She built her nest in a rather exposed place too.

  3. you will be famous for your birds one day!! You capture them brilliantly!

  4. Lovely little hummer…

  5. Wow!! I have seen hummingbirds around here, but never a nest. So amazing that you were able to see that. 🙂

  6. !!!!!! Wordless Wonder.

    • 🙂 I’m so glad you like the images Melissa! It was a really neat and special sighting.

      • Yes, and you had the presence of mind to capture it so beautifully 🙂

        • Oh Melissa, this morning I went back and she had two chicks!!! Their eyes are open now, and the Mother feed them several times while I was there. IT WAS AMAZING!!!

          I’m uploading the images as I type this. OH I HOPE JUST ONE COMES OUT GOOD! 🙂

          Thank you so much for the support and comment! xx

  7. I liked the female hummingbird actually nesting. I think you give us a beautiful “slice of life” when you feature nature. Thank you sincerely. xo

    • Thank you so much Robin for this lovely comment! You made my day!!! xx

      • The fact she got out of her nest to have some sustenance, by sipping from a flower, made me smile! This made me think of human routines, leading me to give this nesting Anna’s hummingbird a personality. 🙂 She’s a sweetheart of a catch, Deborah.

  8. I love how you caught the hummingbird’s wings in the first picture. They are so fascinating to watch.

  9. Envy fills me up! Thanks for sharing these precious moments.

  10. Sweet captures, Deborah, she appears to be so happy!

  11. These are beautiful and so special. I don’t think I ever seen a hummingbird being still. Great shots, Deborah!

  12. How cute. Great shots.

  13. Magnificent photos!

  14. Magical! Beautifully captured. ❤

  15. How lucky to catch a hummingbird nesting. She’s really folded herself up to wedge herself in that tiny nest!!

  16. Wowsa! Kudos to you, Deborah.


  17. You should ask WordPress for a Love button because most of your photos go way beyond Like. 🙂

  18. Deborah these are fantastic images! Thank you for sharing.

  19. Wonderful post! I am looking forward to the return of our little friends. Last year we had, Black-chinned, Rufous and Broad-tails.

  20. so so beautiful that no words are necessary!

  21. These are highly impressive, Deborah. Well done 🙂

  22. Wow. How clever of you to find the nest! Great shots.

    • Thank you Bunty! I can’t take any credit for finding the nest. My friend birded here a week before and found her, and he shared with me.
