they sure are late this year aren't they? Great pics, I like the 2nd one best of this group. The iridescence really shows up.

Thanks Jo-- Yes I have said they are late this year from the getgo but many have disagreed with me. Still have hope for a straggler you just never know.

well DH & I hallucinated that we saw a hummer on Tuesday evening, right around dusk, which is when we see them normally. Thankfully I insisted we leave 1 feeder up, it was near that part of the yard.

My last hummer sighting was Oct. 19th, last year was Oct. 20th. I have left one feeder , and will leave it up, hoping to attract a resident hummer! I left a feeder up in 2011 and saw my first hummer Jan., 4, 2012. Sorry, I was not able to capture a picture. But, I have certainly enjoyed viewing your pictures, hummersteve. Thanks!

Yippee, I just saw a hummer sip at my one feeder still up. It was 12:30 pm, temp. in Baton Rouge now is 77 degrees and sunny, I could not identify it. I hope it comes back today!
