Humming excitement

Today we went out to Corpus Christi because hubby had a meeting to attend and of course we tagged along. I love seeing all the birds out there. Every time I see the pelicans I think of the pterodactyls. Those are some huge birds. Another exciting thing was I met a friend walking into a restaurant without even calling her. How cool was that. I just walked in and there she was. How fun.

After coming home I was excited to see hummingbirds at the feeders again. They came yesterday. Yesterday they were what I've always seen....the ruby-throated hummingbirds. Today I was happy to see what I think is Allen's hummingbird. I'm excited because this is the first time I've seen it in person. I took a bunch of pictures as they zoomed by me sometimes barely missing my head. I love waiting around to see these on our feeders.

I have a ton more pictures of these guys but that is it for now.

We love hummingbirds, but didn't have hardly any this year that would come to the feeder. Sometimes you could see them out at a flower but that was about it. We really missed them this year.

Wow, what a great job capturing those little guys! We had hummingbirds at our last house but this one only seems to have frogs, butterflies and wasps. Go figure.
