Rainy Day Hummingbirds...

It's raining here in Seattle... So I decided to take some pictures of the hummingbirds around our place-They tend to love the rain. These little guys will most likely stay around throughout the winter.

It looks like the above hummingbird is a teenager-He is just starting to get some color...

This colorful one however is an adult who has been around for years~He definitely rules the roost!

The leaves are turning color...

Hope you all had a great weekend!
P.S. I'm crafting something new and exciting with chalkboard paint-I'll post about it sometime this week~IF it turns out! HA!


  1. Wow - those pics were great - the rain can't slow you down girl!

    When making the muffins you just use the mix dry and the other ingredients on the card. They are very soft and moist so I decided I will add two eggs when making a larger version of it. I think it will need a binder so that I can cut slices and serve it easier. I'll let you know in my next post how it comes out!!

    Stay dry!!

  2. Awesome pictures. I have never seen one that close up in person. My Mom collects anything with hummingbirds on it, or hummingbird figurines.

  3. We haven't been able to get hummingbirds to stay around here. We had one or two at our feeder a couple of times, but they just didn't stick around and haven't been back. Maybe I need to try a different brand of food for them.

  4. Wow those are amazing! Are you using telephoto lens girl? Lovely!

  5. I call days like that "Edward Days"..hahaha..makes cloudy days seem so much better ;)

    um..about those yougurt melt poo poos..that actually explains a lot..hahaha!

    I think noelle should be a teddy bear..hehe..she's so cute!

    I'm sure your craft will turn out great!! Good luck!

  6. Wow I have never seen humming birds that color, they are beautiful!
    Hope you had a good weekend- we had a house full of teenagers. It's been fun and noisy!

  11. Robin.. I love those pics of the hummingbirds!! We have had them flittering around here in Olympia a lot too!! I did not know you were in Seattle! =) or if I did... I forgot... I do that! =)

    I can't wait to see what chalkboard fun you are having!! I am chicken to use my big one I made last week... tomorrow I need to just let the kids have at it... and see if it works! lol!

  12. Hi Robin! I always enjoy your bird pictures! (And am always amazed at your photography~ taking pictures of moving objects is not easy!)

    I can't wait to see what you're up to with the chalkboard paint! :)

    I hope you have a great Tuesday, and enjoy the sun today! :)

  13. Our hummingbirds have long since packed their bags and headed south. Your pictures make me realize just how much I miss them!

  14. Lovely little hummers! I think ours have gone away for the winter....

  15. Awww they are so cute. I never see hummingbirds around here. Your photos are fabulous.

    You asked about the little sock shoes Layla was wearing. I like them a lot. She seems to like them better than shoes too. She isn't walking yet. At daycare they want her to wear shoes so these work for now. She does have a pair of cute Nikes but she doesn't really like to wear them.
