Resting

It’s hard work keeping those tiny wings flapping so fast.  A little rest from time to time to catch one’s breath is needed.

Yes, they do need to rest. And they love to defend their territory. I like you photo.

Rarely have I seen a hummingbird at rest. Great capture.

Oh, great shot! They don't do it for very long and you have to be fast.

Looks like it's sleeping! Sweet shot.

RedPat said...

Nice shot. They are such bundles of activity - rare to see them resting!

Love your bokeh background - and it's almost as if the little guy is actually posing for you.
Sorry I've been so scarce - had quite a hectic summer, so no blog hopping for me. I've missed everyone! Hope all is well with you, Sharon.

Nice capture! Ours are all gone now that the cold weather has started.

They are so cute. I posted three photos on Colorado in Color the other day that I had taken on our daughter's back deck way high in the mountains...they are difficult to catch either in motion or at rest!
