All of the above were taken in early April at Fort Desoto. I went thinking it would be a needle in a haystack to find the hummingbirds. There’s a large section of lantana bushes near the busiest migration spot in the park. There were several other photographers there already photographing the hummers. I looked at the bushes and realized the bushes were full of them. Someone had put a hummingbird feeder in the tree right over the bushes. So I stood there for about an hour watching them. Buzzing around and then resting for a few minutes. They must be in great shape. Constantly moving while eating. Maybe that’s how we humans could lose a few pounds, flap our arms as hard as possible while eating healthy food. Just thinking about it made me hungry so I headed off for some fast food.
