I plant lost of hummingbird friendly plants in my pollinator garden, lots of them around the deck and waterfall so there always around when I am sitting outside, I have feeders but I take them down for the summer since there are plenty of flowers for them.

Male Anna's

I like to get pictures of them at the flowers, I don't worry about freezing the wings.

Rufous juvenile male, the young males dominate the yard for the summer, the adults leave by the end of June.

Hummingbirds spend most there day perched watching for other hummingbirds guarding there patch.

Amazing! I tried to 'fake' the plant scene this summer by attaching snipped blossoms to the hummingbird feeder, but it never quite worked out. :lol:

I haven't had much luck with that either, I find having plants near where I am taking pictures of other birds works best then when a hummingbird comes by I will get pictures of them also.

Thanks!
