Humming Bird Feeder

This little wasp was pretty nasty all day, thinking the Humming Bird feeder belonged to him.   Every time a Humming Bird approached the feeder, Mr. Wasp attacked until they flew away.

While the wasp was chasing another bird, this one zoomed in.  And while I was taking pictures the 'hummers' were buzzing around my head, and thought my ear had syrup in it!!!

Finally this little gal had a chance to eat:

Doesn't she have pretty eyes?

The Ground's Keeper was totally unaware of what was going on over head!!!

And that's the way it is.....................................


  1. Oh, boy do those scenes lool familiar...only i am not so handy with the camera.

  2. WOW..... you take great pictures!!!!
    Grounds keeper very funny..giggles.

  3. This is sooo cute, but that wasp was a bold little bugger, huh? Oh, that hummer is beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Hugs

  4. you sure take some great shots, love them all. I have a hornet catcher...a little sugar water and he cannot get out, then he's a gonner due to no escape. Love that thing. Works for flies too

  5. Oh my! Great Surprise Photo Op!!!

    Oh I'd have been so mad at that nasty Wasp! My blood pressure would have been sky-high. LOL.

  6. Mean old wasp! Love to watch the hummers and your groundskeeper is cute as can be!
    Have a good weekend.

  7. Muff, Just had to stop back to tell you, it's hard, most times, to stay out of trouble, so I think I will sink or now, there is sauerkraut to stomp.

  8. You got great shots, are they not at all scared of you? They look so comfortable just noshing away.

  9. Gorgeous photos! I'd have been a little afraid to be that near the wasp! The hummies are adorable, as is the chippy!

  10. Wonderful photos, Muffy!!! Love hummingbirds and that little furry guy! But I HATE wasps!!!


  11. Hi Muffy..Beautiful shots of the Hummingbird ..who doesn't love one of them : }!
    I know what you mean about the wasp's I saw that happen at my feeder to!!
    I see you have one of my new neighbor Chip's cousins living there ; ]!!

  12. Wonderful shots of the Hummingbird. The best I have seen...especially the close up of him feeding. I love our little Chippy...he visits each evening.

  13. Great images. Those wasps can be so ornery.

  14. We had to take our feeder down because it was attracting too many wasps. We have an infestation this year.

  15. chuckling at the grounds keeper!! awesome shots of the hummer, i love all the detail in these up close images!! i love that the girls like/trust us more then the boys!!

  16. Amazing shots. I usually just get a blur. I have noticed a bunch of wasps also. So far, the wasps and the hummers seem to co-exist fairly well.

  17. I hate those bee guards work? Someone said something about vaseline on their feeders helped to cut down on bees/wasps. I would have kilt that guy..I am heartless when it comes to wasps.
    You did great getting photo of the Hummers!! They are hard to photograph:)
