Hummingbirds

What is it about hummingbirds?  Do they come back to the same place every year?  These girls (I think they are females) seem to come back.  If they make it to my yard before my feeder is out, they remind me.  They buzz by and hover at the empty spot where the feeder hung the previous year as if trying to jog my memory.  I think they are all female Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds- I haven’t seen any males here yet.  I haven’t shot many pictures of hummingbirds  – I just never bothered. This was a good starting point for me, as I had my shutter up to 1000 and as you can see, it still wasn’t fast enough! These tiny birds are amazing little things.

I imagine I will have plenty of practice this summer.
