Glimmers of Light

As I was walking in the woods, I noticed some sparkly things.  It turned out to be a monitoring project for hummingbird conservation.  Here is concern for the well-being of migrants as well as residents.

If we loose hummers and bees, we're dead. Nice captures of the little beauties.

Geat captures of the hummers. Jules and I sat out in the garden at lunch and watched the flit around, great entertainment.

How Neat, Diane. I love Hummingbirds--and finally saw some here this past week. We used to have lots of hummingbirds here --but for the past couple of years, we have not. I hope more of them visit us this summer..

Great pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful bird! In our area there are many humming birds. Some birds visit my home for drinking the nectar of the flowers!
