  1. You are so lucky with those hummingbirds! I'd never be able to grab my camera fast enough to get a shot.

    1. I thought for sure there was no way I was going to be able to capture him before he flew away!

  2. Such great pictures! Especially loving the raindrops on the leaves and a fabulous hummingbird shot too! I finally got to see one in my backyard .... we had lots of them last year, not so much this year!

    1. Thanks! We always have quite a few hummingbirds around; in fact we've had to rescue a few of them from our garage too.

    1. They are so quick and I was surprised to get a photo where one was so still.

  7. That's amazing that you got a picture of the hummingbird like that. Their wings are usual so fast and fluttery, I don't think I've ever seen a picture where there wings didn't look like a blur from the movement!

    1. I thought so too! I couldn't believe it when I saw it after I took it. It was like the bird posed just for me!

  10. All great photos! The sparkling dew on the leaves and the rocky stream both make me feel cooled and refreshed just looking at them.

  11. Aww! I adore hummingbirds and probably spend an inordinate amount of time photographing them ;). Is it a female ruby-throated hummingbird?

    1. I think so; though it could be a juvenile too as they don't get their ruby throat right away.

  12. A wonderful week with your camera. I specially love your rocky stream - it looks so peaceful and cool, and that hummingbird (we don't have them), everyone has already said it above! I haven't seen that pretty lacy flower before wither - so delicate and lacy. CarolG
