Hummingbird Alphabet Crazy

Sharing a photo of a ruby-throated hummingbird on my deck feeder. This was taken a few months ago, after a rain shower. We need rain now so bad.

The ruby-throated hummingbird flies 500 miles nonstop across the Gulf of Mexico during both its spring and fall migrations.

Hummingbirds lay the smallest eggs of all birds. Their eggs measure less than 1/2 inch long but may represent as much as 10 percent of the mother’s weight at the time the eggs are laid. 

A hummingbird egg is smaller than a jelly bean!

This photo will be shared with Alibb’s Alphabet Crazy challenge. I am still on the letter “H”.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Oh I see the rain. That is so neat. She is lovely, and good job on clicking as the sun lit up her throat. I have a ruby red that visits my butterfly bush at exactly 3:45 each afternoon. She doesn’t mind me sitting right next to her as she feeds.

  2. What a cute little oiseau-mouche (hummingbird in French). Yes we see them here in the Outaouais valley but rarely and none with that shade of red such as your photo. Oiseau mouche actually literally mean fly bird and I tend to agree because they are so small and so quick just like a fly.
