Readers’ wildlife photos

June 7, 2021 • 8:00 am

Today we have “Eight ways of looking at a hummingbird,” a series of photos by Steve Adams. Steve’s captions are indented, and you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

 Here are a few photos of some Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (Archilochus colubris) that have been frequenting our feeder this Spring. They have been such a joy to watch and photograph! Thanks again for showcasing these photographs. It always makes my day to see what others have been capturing with their cameras.

  1. Wow, both a male and a female. I haven’t seen our females yet.
    You got a couple great pics showing the “ruby” throat. It takes great patience to see the red even though they frequently sit for a bit. Its all in the light😊

    1. I have been putting out two hummingbird feeders for the last several years. I might see as many as two or three birds at a time, but I have never once seen a male at a feeder. I am constantly puzzled by this.

  2. Excellent photos. This spring, I’ve seen my first male Anna’s hummingbird. Such beautiful birds. Nice catch of the tongue in that last photo!
