This photo was posted here on Mar 31, the day this little shy female and a male arrived here in West TN. I've seen hummers every day since then. But not today. *sniff*
Yes, sad times indeed but at least you had them at least a week longer than I and some of the rest on here. My first hummer did not arrive in my yard untill april 30 at 9:00pm and my final sighting on oct 6. I cant complain. Such a long winter we have, but take heart you will see them about 1 month before I will.
I feel your pain guys,
All of us here are likely missing our hummers now.
This is how we remember ours... until they return again next year:
keep heart...they'll be back,

Kenn, your photography is beautiful.
Great shots. What camera are you using?
Let us know when you see your first 2008 spring visitor. We'll know they're on their way!
Thanks scouterbecky and hummersteve,
My camera is a Canon S3-IS.
Perhaps some of you might enjoy the many other hummer shots (and lots of other bird photos) in our Gallery.
