Amazing aviary

Several weeks ago we put out the hummingbird feeder near our kitchen window and ever since we've had little feathered visitors all day from sunrise until dusk.  They are so agile, swift, petite, and amazing - I just had to snap some photos of them. A delicate example of God's beautiful winged creatures!

Female hummingbird

 The green feathers on their back are iridescent.

 Male hummingbird - this one's throat can look black from one angle and but turns violet when the light hits just right

Two males getting "territorial". 

 They decided to share :-)

Different type of male hummingbird.  He appears to be "older" and his neck looks as if it has red scratches on it.
