Hummingbird wars

So I spent two hours this morning playing with my new camera (I kept what my family gave me - Lumix TS10 - it helps to have 5 siblings so you get better presents :-) ) and trying to capture the hummingbird wars. It was good to take me away from my frustrations with work and feelings of failure, etc. I still haven't done my exercise though, but that will have to wait.

I'm not sure why some of the photos aren't appearing. Here's one below. A resting hummingbird temporarily in control of the feeder. It's amazing - I stood out there and they are buzzing around really fighting it out. I hear collisions. I stand nearby and they don't even care. I feel bad! Stop fighting! Eat! Can't you all get along?? In any event, now I have to work. Happy weekend all!

Oh yeah.....those little buggers are really difficult to capture on the camera with all their whizzing around!

And nope, they don't care--get OUTTA the way and off their feeder, tyvm!
I love those little guys!!

Silly birds! I had a woman come into the store where I was working to buy a second feeder because of her humming bird wars. I don't know if it helped or not.

That guy is large and in charge. Or...tiny, it's all miney!

Anyway, glad you are enjoying your new camera.
