Nice!

 

You could put a feeder nearby, or plant a bunch of hummingbird attracting flowers. If they don't nest at least they'll pass through occasionally.

I love it treign !

I have been feeding the hummers for as many years as I have lived here. After a while they associate you with the feeder, and lose their instinctive caution of you. The buzz me now to let me know one of their prefered feeders is empty, and I'm slacking, or sometimes just to say hi.  They also nest in plain sight of me and are not afraid of my presence. I do try not to disturb the nesting females very much, but they don't seem to mind if I come in close once in a while for a better peek.

 

If you do feed them, it is a commitment. If you live as I do where it is almost never freezing, they will hang out all year except for the migrators, and the ones that winter here become dependent on you for food when there is nothing blooming. Otherwise you need to take the feeders down in the fall so they will move off to warmer climes for the winter. If you have fed them, they will return come spring to check you out, and add you to the must see attractions list.....................

I love the hummingbirds, they are so cool!

We get them in South Central, and South East Alaska, but they are not real common here.

Thanks for the pics Treign :)

Treign, is it within the realm of possibility that your images for posting could be downsized, both by bytes and pixels, to load quicker and not exceed the limits of the average computer screen?  I prefer images that are 800X600 max and 72dpi is the best most screens will display.   This will make an image that is usually less than 200Kb.  Your images there were about 2.25 Mb each, and about one and a half more pixels than my full display.

Because all the photography I do is for sharing on the internet, I set my camera to smaller than the parameters I described above (640px X 480px).  If you are not working with images as a photo artist, then you are wasting your own bandwidth and storage space.  I know it's hard to set up some cameras, and I would be hard pressed to do it again with my own camera without working at it, as I can't remember how I did it.  If you are shooting with a smart fone, I have no clue, as I have never had one.  I am not very techy, though I was when I was younger.  Shit got away from me a long time ago.  I hope you figure something out.  I know you are trying.  Thanks.
