Winter hummer – Vancouver, BC

I was bursting with excitement when I saw our winter hummingbird chugging down sugar-water from the feeder. Jumping for my camera I managed to take some photos through the door that was already slightly open. This was taken in December on a day when it was snowing a lot in the city. You can see in the photos the snow fall – the white fuzzy lines in the background.

I’m guessing with all the snow and drop in temperature, the hummingbird really needed to fatten up. Watching it closely, it looked like a fish swimming in water with the way it moved its body while flying and tucking in its little legs. What a cutie!

So here’s to the New Year! May it be filled with lots of fun exciting adventures!
