Wild Bird Wed

This Wed I am sharing the hummingbird babies that are still here.I believe that their parents have already left. I spent yesterday afternoon outside picking peaches with my camera beside me. They are so curious, also appearing to look up to the sky as if they were searching for a sign as to when to go.

A female cardinal was feeding her baby, the baby looks great, but she looks a little frazzled.

The Carolina wren was molting too.

The photos may not load in order, but here`s my selection for Steward`s meme...go here to submit your photos http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com.au/

Oh Phylisso! These photos are amazing!!!! You have tamed those hummers! Next year I must grow zinnias again-I miss them. What are you doing with the peaches?

I love the hummingbirds! We don't have them here and I've never seen one in person.

Great photos! I can't believe the hummingbird stayed still that long. I've never been able to get a shot of one. Maybe next year I'll finally get the feeder I've been saying I'm gonna get.

Love those sweet little hummers. That young cardinal looks old enough to feed himself.

The Hummingbird is so lovely to see... and a bird I probably will never see in the wild.
Many thanks for sharing.

Amazing photos! I love the hummers. We still have several here, mostly females. I think one is a young male; I see a spot of red when he stretches his neck. You have lots of peaches! I froze the peaches I brought back from Pennsylvania, after making a peach pie. Peaches grow delicious around there.

What awesome photos! I love the hummingbird shots. I haven't seen our hummers for some time now, so I wonder if they're gone for the year. Lovely flowers!
