I love hummingbirds. I have a few that hang out by my house, I feed them all summer long (they’re a little spoiled – I use filtered water and usually add extra sugar to the mix).

I even downloaded an app from the Audubon Society to track the hummingbirds that come to my feeders, but since it’s the same birds day in, day out, I stopped the updates. I haven’t stopped enjoying the birds, however.

They’re going to be leaving in a few weeks. The other day, I realized I hadn’t appreciated them this summer as much as in summers past, so I spent a little time chilling by the feeders with my camera. It was around sunset on a beautiful evening in Albuquerque, and it didn’t take long for one of the birds to come for a drink.

I thought it’d be nice if I took you along on the journey with me.

To get the full experience, you should keep in mind that even though I see these same birds every day, I still get excited to see them.

So it’s best that you fidget in your seat when you scroll really, really fast.

Ready? Go!

Haha, good times!

Did you feel like you were there? I’m sure you did.

I’m gonna miss those little boogers when they’re gone.

There’s still time to guess the plant puzzler, in which I asked if this plant was real or fake?

If you think you know the answer, leave your best guess in the comments section or on my facebook wall. The deadline is tonight at midnight MST (that’s 2am EST).

I’ll reveal the answer and the winner(s) tomorrow after an all-new Ask the Experts panel. Imaginary prizes will abound. Hope to see you back here.
