  1. absolutely stunning, STUNNING photos!
    those hummingbirds come into my yard all the time and while i marvel at their coloration from afar, these images (in their exquisite detail) really show how spectacular they are.
    thanks so much to wsblog for publishing these and to the photographer for taking the time to capture them in such amazing light.

  4. David!

    Thank you. Purdy bird :)

    And for folks who wonder how to get these hummers to visit your yard during the spring – plant our native current shrub – available at West Seattle Nursery – I just bought a new one and it’s a hummer magnet. You need to place it in your yard so it will have space to eventually grow to 6 feet wide by about 10 feet tall over a decade or so. Totally worth making the space for this hummingbird favorite and so good for naturalizing your yard’s habitat. Look:
