Hummingbird

In the Netherlands we didn't have hummingbirds, so when I moved here I was thrilled to discover that they are quite common here.

 

We usually get a hummingbird feeder during the summer, but even without that, you see them around, drinking nectar from flowers. The biggest problem is taking a good picture of them. They usually fly away long before I get the camera out and ready.

 

One of my summer goals is to get a good picture, but for now these ones will have to do ^^

Thank you!
I am still hoping to get a better one one of those days. Today a hummingbird shows up, so Kate grabbed the camera and tried to make a picture. Result: one bad picture and one picture just after hummingbird flew away ^^

Good to have a summer goal, right?
