    I went to the Dallas World Aquarium this past weekend and captured these shots of this humming bird. The bird was only about an inch and a half tall. sooo tiny, but beautiful.

    Around here, in the summertime, there are hummingbirds all around, but you will never see them unless you put out a feeder. They are plentiful in the warm weather months.

    We put out the feeder (a mix of red, sweet flavored water), stuck to the window glass with a suction cup, so when they come up to the feeder, you can be on the other side of the window, just inches from them.

    Being on the inside of the window doesn't seem to bother them, and puts you in a great position to just watch, or take photographs...
