Hello Everyone! Since 2012 was my first year hummingbird gardening and a great birding year for us all let's celebrate! Show your pictures of hummingbirds in your garden. Here is a picture I took on a warm July day while a robin was eating in background as the female ruby throated hummer drank. I hope you enjoy and happy NEW YEAR!

all I have is a blurry shot, taken through dog-drool spotted window, so I won't subject anyone to that mess. I sure love looking at the pics others take, your is nice Eric. I like the robin up front, too.

Happy New Year to all my hummingbird friends, I can't wait for warm weather & the return of the hummers to Detroit! Hoping 2013 is a good year to all, and for the hummers.

Please share the picture jomuir! I just finished planting some dormant plants I got for Christmas since there was a thaw today.

This is the best hummingbird pic I took, a female ruby throat at an agastashe rupestris.

I wish I could remember the names of them. Here we are currently hosting three Anna hummingbirds who are enduring freezing temperatures. My feeders are very busy. And I just realised that these pics were supposed to be in my garden.Well, I wish I lived there and it was my garden! :)

Wow! Hummingbirds are truly beautiful animals. Here are more of my pics. It isn't my best though.

Wow! It looks so peaceful! I really like the citrus tree and hummingbird shepherd hook. Here is another hummer in the garden.

I think this is a female Ruby Throat, pretty sure this is the only kind of hummingbird we get here in Ontario Canada between April and Sept. This was taken July 2012. She looks very regal, doesn't she?

Beautiful pics on this thread! A pleasure to look at. Unfortunately, I rarely get good pics of this little bird. And I didn't get ANY pics in 2012, because I had a new resident hummer this past year who was super hyper. Half the time I would only hear her, and didn't see her, she would buzz by so quickly!
