More Hummingbird Photos

I found out why I couldn't see little eggs in the nest any longer - there are little babies! I didn't want to touch the branch, so I held up a mirror. Unfortunately, I found it almost impossible to get a non-blurry picture with my little camera and no tripod.

It didn't take long before the mom tried to chase me away. This photo is blurred, too, but mostly from her wing movement. You can see that flash of bluegreen that wasn't visible in the photo of her sitting on her nest. Isn't this cool?!

I promise to do a weaving non-hummingbird post soon - I've resleyed on the David loom and will give the taquete images another go with a looser sett.

These photos are keeping me very happy and hopeful. We are having a snow storm right now and have at least 6" so far and no end in sight. Keep showing me photos like this and I'll be a happy gal.
