I Wished for Hummingbirds and I Got Them

I'm starting off this post the same way I did the last one...

"After reading the blog over at It's All Good and then following his link to Stolen Moments and seeing the beautiful photographs there...."

I found myself wishing I had more clear and close-up photos of hummingbirds in my own portfolio. But in the gardens here at Rosehaven Cottage I need a more powerful telephoto lens if I want good shots of the hummingbirds around here.

Then we went to visit my husband's parents that lives 3 1/2 hours away. Dad (my father-in-law) loves birds as much, if not more than I do. He has a hummingbird feeder just outside his family room window so he can see them come to feed as he sits on the couch. When we first got there, we were visiting and I kept getting distracted by the adorable winged creatures that frequently came down for sips from the their perch in his camphor tree a few feet away from the feeder. So I went over to the window with my camera and shot through the spaces between the blinds to capture the sweet things only inches from my lens on the other side of the glass.

Then I went out on the back patio and was able to get some other really intriguing silhouette shots that I'm very pleased with as well.

So I got my wish! I now have photos of hummingbirds in my portfolio. They aren't from Rosehaven Cottage, but that will suffice for now until I save up my pennies for the telephoto lens I want.

Pin It!


  1. I love hummingbirds also, this year was the first time ever I saw hummingbird. Unfortunately it was for few seconds, but was still nice to see. Nice blog.

  2. Great photos! I love seeing hummingbirds.

  3. Nice shots! I especially like the top photo, as well as the first silhouette. And I, too, am suffering from telephoto lens envy! (For now, I'm doing the best I can with my point 'n' shoot.) : )

  4. Hi Cindy ~
