Now that October has arrived, the hummingbirds are fewer in number.  Only one or two seem to still remain, and it won’t be long before they, too, have flown away. I have found it very difficult to photograph hummingbirds, although I was successful once or twice this summer and have posted those photos here:

This photo, taken earlier this week, may be the last one until the hummingbirds return next spring.

Last hummingbird of the seasonFor some amazingly beautiful images of hummingbirds, take a moment to watch this video, featuring the song “Hummingbird” by Seals and Crofts.

“Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away.
In you I’ve found a fragrance. I’ll love you ’til I die.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don’t even know the reason why.
Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away.
The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don’t even know the reason why. Now,
Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don’t fly away, fly away.”
