USA – Hummingbird

Distances that we had to drive in USA, were usually quite big, so we had to stop from time to time to relax a bit. It wasn’t difficult to find a nice place for a break, because there are many of them on the way. And often we’re positively surprised how beautiful this place was. A few times we met these cute, tiny hummingbirds. It’s very enjoyable to observe them!

Stany Zjednoczone to ogromny kraj i często pokonywaliśmy wiele, wiele mil. Od czasu do czasu trzeba było zrobić przerwę aby się nie zamęczyć jazdą. Z reguły nie mieliśmy żadnego problemu aby znaleźć piękne miejsce na krótki odpoczynek – było ich mnóstwo po drodze! Nasz pierwszy przystanek był cudownie ulokowany, las, górki i kolibry! Kolibry spotkaliśmy kilka razy i wtedy nasze przerwy się trochę wydłażyły obserwując i fotografując te prześliczne, maleńkie ptaszki. 🙂

    1. Indeed, it’s quite difficult to take a picture of them, mine camera wasn’t good enough for their wings.

  1. Kolibry są super!
    Spędziłam kiedyś dwie godziny fotografując je – a raczej usiłując nadążyć z uchwyceniem odpowiedniego ujęcia 😀

    1. Dokładnie rozumiem! My je głównie spotykaliśmy nieoczekiwanie podczas przerw i wtedy przerwy się wydłużały 😀

    1. Ciekawe, dzięki, nie słyszałam o tym! 🙂 Choć wikipedia podaje, iż jest to motyl, a nie ptak.

    1. Widzieliśmy różne kolibry, jedny były bardziej zielone, inne bardziej niebieskie – wszystkie niesamowicie urocze! 🙂

    1. Thanks! Yes, I heard that they need so much energy so people help them by preparing sweet water for them. That’s why it also attracts bees 😉

    1. Thank you a lot! It’s my forth or fifth nomination, I guess I really need to find some time to work on them…
      Have a great day! 🙂

  2. Oh my! I love to write about hummingbirds in my poetry…especially haiku at my other blog. Your photos are so beautiful, such a treat to visit your blog and journey vicariously with you. Thanks for visiting Traces as well 🙂

  3. Where we live in the country of southern Indiana we have, dare I say hundreds of hummingbirds. . . dozens anyway. They’re gone for the winter now but they were a treat early this year. We set out several feeders, and several are needed as they are quite the territorial little shits. Yep, little birds with big attitudes.

    As an aside, I’m still not receiving updates from you blog, though I subscribed a number of times. Not sure what the problem is, or whether you or I could fix it. So in the meantime I’ll keep dropping by unannounced. 🙂

    1. oh, it has to be amazing to see so many of them! I’m really happy, that people like you, help them by feeding – that’s really great!
      And thank you for letting me know about this problem, I heard that there’s something wrong with some blogs, I’ll read it. In meantime I added you to the mailing list, I guess you got an email, or maybe it’s in a spam folder?

  4. always nice to see the hummers! our five have taken to hoarding and fighting over the nectar feeders, and the flowers that are still blooming. 🙂
