Close up of an Anna’s Hummingbird feeding

Hummingbirds are not always easy to photograph as they dart here and there feeding on flowers and on feeders that kind people set out for them.  Mark Simkins recently had one visit his feeder in Manchester.

 Four parts water to one part sugar is the ratio these tiny birds love. People must clean the feeders often to protect these living jewels. We wouldn't want to do harm while trying to help!

Thanks to Mark for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see another photo of an Anna's Hummingbird, here is the link: http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2012/01/03/annas-hummingbird-beautifully-photographed-by-coastal-photographer-siegfried-matull/
