Tiny Hyperactive Warriors With Wings

We've been watching two hummingbirds that come into the yard in the late afternoon – early evening during the past week. They move hyperactive fast!  I've been wondering how in the world does anyone get a photo of these little guys?

This is a photo from a copyright free site –

When I think of hummingbirds, I think  of tiny,  delicate birds, and of all the beautiful photos and paintings of them with  gorgeous flowers.  Do we have that in our yard?  No……. we have tiny hyperactive warriors with wings!

They are charging at each other, up and down, in and out, and chasing each other over a butterfly bush and a handful of bee balm…….. I guess they are so busy creating a ruckus that they've not noticed that  there's an entire hillside of at least 10 more butterfly bushes! 

Watching them, the art side of my brain starts to wander, …..  The juxtaposition of  delicate, cute versus attacking, fierce hummingbirds is intriguing….. do their beaks act  as swords, the green on the top of their heads as tiny helmet…. It could be an interesting fantasy art painting …… hmmmm…reaching for the sketch book.  

Enjoy the rest of your day !

  2. I stop whatever I am doing to watch a hummingbird. They are so amazing and beautiful.  I can't wait to see your sketch.
