Bud really great shot of hummers in the wild. Here in Tn. they are definitely down from previous years but a few are visiting the feeder. I agree with the moderator they are some of the best.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the comments!  The numbers have picked up here over the past 2 days with several young hummingbirds visiting the yard as well as  a big increase in the number of swallowtail butterflies.  I've still only seen 2 Monarchs this year and I know that their numbers are supposed be down by almost 60% according to some estimates due to habitat destruction in Mexico and the cool spring that we had here in the U.S.  Hopefully, the hummingbird / butterfly season will end with a bang!
