I woke up early this morning to try and get some decent pictures of the male and female Ruby Throated Hummingbirds that have appeared. I’m making a conscious effort to try and take pictures that have a more pleasing background. I’m not always successful, as some of the pictures I don’t have time to plan the shot, but I’m trying.
So anyway, I mentioned yesterday that we had a female Ruby Throated Hummingbird appear to join the male. I got some decent pictures of both of them today and wanted to share.
This first picture would have been really good had it not been for the gold post holding the Hummingbird feeder. It bothered me so much I cloned it out. Now it just looks like the feeder is floating..oh well:-). The red flowers in the background are from our Wildflower Garden.
The next two shots are of the male flying towards our yellow Hummingbird feeder.
Even though the female appeared yesterday, I haven’t witnessed the male and female interacting in any way. The male seems really biased towards the Coral Honeysuckle, whereas the female shows a preference for the feeders. The pictures below are of the female.
