ruby hummer hovering behind the chimes

Day five of thirty.

I enjoy watching hummingbirds. We have feeders near our homeschool room window and by our pack porch window. For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to capture a shot of the Ruby Throated Hummingbird. I’m not sure if it is the same bird I’ve seen each day since it is time for them to be traveling south.

Most of my hummingbird pictures turn out with a blurry spot because the move so quickly. This morning I managed to get a picture of one. I had to stand in the rain but I got a picture. These little guys have brought our family so much joy this summer. No matter the weather or temperature they show up and accept our offering. In return we find delight and wonder just watching their antics.
