a hummingbird’s life

(This is my second posting today.  I’m trying to catch up on some blogging and visiting blogs.)

Here are other “I” words to describe hummingbirds.  Can you add more?

  • Wings flap in the shape of an infinity symbol
  • They achieve the seemingly impossible
  • They are independent and migrate alone
  • Even juveniles instinctively know when to migrate and they also migrate alone
  • They can move in all directions instantaneously
  • Impressive in beauty and talent
  • Inspiring…

This goes to show that incredible feats can come in small packages!

This is a photo of a male black-chinned hummingbird.  It took me a while to get a photo of this bird at the right angle and lighting to capture the rich purple color on its throat…while in flight.  For a few more hummingbird facts, see my previous posting here.

This is for the letter “I” Story Challenge by Frizztext, to share a short story or reflection, even an aphorism using a word tagged with each letter of the alphabet.

  1. Breathtaking shot and your editing is wonderful! Such a treat to view your work. Thank you for sharing it with all the participants at Photo Art Friday, Fergiemoto!!

  2. So sorry I’m late getting over to visit your entry in WTS, school started and has been hectic. Yesterday it was 90 and about 100 inside the bus (with open windows) and the stress of making sure all the littlest ones (K) get off at the right stop to their parents! I love this shot… the little hummer seems in suspended animation and the colors are divine! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #46!

  3. Not only is the hummingbird in itself impressive, but how you were able to capture it in mid-air is equally impressive. A beautiful photograph of a beautiful bird. I rest my case…

Thanks so much for your comments!
