Vertical flying- show off!


The theme of the WP weekly challenge and my last entry for this week has to be one of THE Most ephemeral birds around- the hummingbird. She darts hither and thither teasing the photographer to capture that shot. These may not be the best I have ever taken but it is so nice to be able to enjoy this little bird and its antics this morning.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Actually, the sighting was in Jeterville which I think is in Amelia County!! I remembered that was where you were from! There are only 2 sightings listed in VA so far. Be on the look out!😀


  2. Oh I see! Yes the male I think has a ruby neck. Actually I’ve seen several
    Different kind in and around phoenix and and usually resort to the bird book for identification. Somebody needs to to develop a Shazam app for birds. !


  3. Oops, To clarify, that question was for Silver! Do you live in Arizona, Vanilla? Are your hummingbirds Ruby throats or another kind? I’ll have to look at the migration map! Enjoy your sightings!


  4. Hey, I have been following the hummingbird migration on a website map and someone posted a sighting I think was in your county! Was it you? I have been watching my feeder just in case they are nearby!


i'd love to hear from you...
