My little hummers are sure keeping me busy this year, actually they do every summer. I have 3 big feeders and 3 small feeders in my flower boxes on the porch. They love the little feeders in the boxes as I have alot of petunias in those boxes and they love them. I have to feel the little feeders up every day. So I have to keep a big pitcher of sugar water in the refridgerator at all times.
The hummers are so cute,,but they are also very aggressive and territorial. So funny to watch them fight on the feeders and chase each other. And if their flower box feeders are empty, they will zoom very close to me when I come out to let me know they need refills,,lol. I have a feeder in my bedroom window that I can stand and take pictures of them. I can also sit by the feeders on the porch and take pictures,,they are a little skittish, but I guess they figure if I feed them they can be photogenic sometimes too,,lol.
