Beat my personal late-date by 1 day and that was sat 20th and luckily I got a photo of the record breaker. Havent seen any since then.
heres a few more recent shots of recent hummers and select shots from the season
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!
Beautiful pictures! How do they let you get so close?
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!
My lone hummer appeared this morning at 8:30 and sipped a few times, female
