Little creatures....

Hey all!
I'm going to post about something really neat:)
So one day, about a week and a half ago, my sister Allison was playing in our back yard.  Every year around this time, we get hundreds of Humming Birds:)
So my sis is playing next to a tree and she keeps hearing a little humming bird somewhere close to her.  She looks up and, TADA! she see's a nest!
So I've been taking pictures of it every day.  We got to watch the little bird make her nest.  It's pretty cool:)
Around 6 days ago I went out and there was an egg!  A tiny little white egg:)  Then I checked 4 days ago, and there is another egg!
We are REALLY excited to see baby humming birds!!!!  I got a really cool picture of the momma:-D
This is my best picture of her:)  I am so happy it turned out so well!

This was a couple days ago....  She's so cute:)

And here are the little eggs!

I couldn't get past the branch up top...  But at least I got this much!
I can't wait till they hatch!  I hope I can get good baby pictures:)  If I do, I'll be sure to post them!

Have a good weekend!


  1. Your photography skills are amazing :O !! The bird is adorable (: I have a lot of hummingbirds around my house but lately I haven't seen many.

    By the way, here's my blog (:

    1. Hello Megan! Thank you so much! I love photography:) I have been blessed with the opportunity to be able to photograph the hummingbirds:) I think they are fascinating....
      You've got an awesome blog!


    2. No problem! I love photography too but your skills are far beyond mine. Every time I get close to birds they fly off.
      Oh, and thank you (:

  2. Wow, great pictures!!!! That must be a very large species of hummingbirds seeing those eggs, as average hummingbirds eggs are the size of as pea!!!! I'm kinda the bird know-it-all in our house:)


    1. Hey Layla!
      Thanks:) I'm pretty happy with them:)
      I don't know... They are pretty tiny eggs.... It might be the zoom on my camera... I've got a 55 to 200 zoom, and I was about 2 feet away from them:)

      Your the bird expert? You'd have a great time with my sister Allison:) She's the know-it-all about birds and dogs in our family:D

    2. It probably is the zoom... I'd know because I have that lens!!!!!!:):)

      Yeah, I'm the bird expert; I got into a conversation about birds with someone I didn't know very well and they started making up bird related nicknames for me:)

      By the way, what are a few of your favorite books?


    3. Really? That's cool:)

      Haha:) My sister can do that with dogs. She got into a conversation with a British guy over them... I think he started calling her Pooch, but I can't be sure...

      Favorite books: Mara: Daughter of the Nile, Anne of Green Gables, Ella Enchanted, Princess Academy, Star Wars, Lord Of the Rings, The Hobbit, Snow Treasure and The Chronicles of Narnia.... I could go on and on, but these are the 1st few that came to mind:D

      What are some of your favorite books?
