Sunday Stills - Summertime

What says summer to you?

Most of what says summer to me is not fit for a "family" blog, but one thing I do like about summer is hearing the hummingbirds buzz in and watching them work the flowers around the porch.







For more Summery Sunday Stills...

Impressive capture of the flashing beauty of the hummingbird. The detail is amazing! These photos define my summer as well.

Lovely!!
I have this very same purple butter fly bush! I thought it was red at the time I bought it, but I love it still. Did you use a tripod??? Amazing the clarity - adorable hummingbird!

Wonderful hummingbird pictures. They're so fast I always admire when someone get clear pictures of them. We don't have them around here unfortunately.

WOW! These are terrific shots. My hummers are too fast for me to photograph. Nice job. :)

WOW, what great shots. I've had tons of hummers here this year, but haven't gotten any decent photos of them. Well done.

Beautiful shots! I too have a similar butterfly bush, must be a popular color. Hummer's definitely remind me of summer, they head south for most of other seasons.

Great shots! We've only had one poor lost hummer fly through.

Beautiful captures of this flyer! They can be so hard to photograph. I received the book yesterday afternoon. Thanks so much!

Oh how I wish I had some of those purple flower bushes! All I have are the feeders and I get so many hummers visiting...and take tons of photos. I love taking photos of hummers, but purple flowers would make such a beautiful background for them.

Great job on these photos!
