Wombie's Hummingbirds - Part 2

Part 2 of Wombie's hummingbirds.  They stopped by daily while I was dogsitting Miss Maddie and I set up my camera not too far from their nectar.  These guys can beat their wings 53 times a second which makes taking their pictures tough, if you are trying to do it with manual settings.  

Ruby throated hummingbirds are the only ones in the species to breed in North America, while the rest tend to do it when on vacation in Mexico, where they migrate each winter.  

Only the males have the scarlett red throats, while the mothers once again get nature's shaft, stuck without the pretty feathers and then have to spend all their time raising their kids.  

More hummingbirds coming up in the next few days.
