Today I saw a hummingbird tongue!

How cool is that? She was sitting aways up above me, just behind a branch so I couldn't get a good picture. But I did see her flick her tongue out a few times. I don't think I have ever seen that before.

I have been sitting out under my tree for the last 3 nights trying to get a good picture of my hummingbirds. They will feed like normal every evening if I sit on the other side of the tree. But if I move my chair to the side that gives me a better shot, they avoid the feeder. They will come along for just a few seconds and then flit to the other feeder.

Does anyone know how to take a good hummingbird picture? Or do you know what kind of hummer this is?

Fun pic! Looks like a great day to be outdoors too! Sorry I am not hummingbird sauvy!

I had a great hummingbird site saved in my favorites, but I deleted it last week. I'll try to find it. It shows different types of hummers and gives their names. I hope you had a nice time sitting under your feeder, even though you didn't get the perfect pix.
