Love the photos and the history behind them.

So impressed you got a hummer to sit still.
My hummers have been very active protecting their food source. Had a few window hits the past few days as they chase one another away from the feeders.

Thanks Spedangle, I've had the feeder up for decades and the bees have not found it yet. I did have ant issues but that was solved by installing one of those green ant barrier devices.

Thank you Zig!

vsch1 - thanks, I have found that these guys are pretty oblivious to humans. If I sit for 10 - 15 minutes in one spot, they will eventually come back to their territory.
