Hummingbird Babies + Nest

the nest is built in to my bike chainring mobile, just outside the kitchen door. Feb 24th - March 7th
Nikon D600, mix of lenses early, mostly 300 af-s late
These two are Feb 24



this one is Feb 25th, both beaks still pointed same direction




March 1, babies are head to tail in the nest, you can see one is developing faster than the other






 March 4, only 1 left in the nest...
...cause the other one is a bird on a wire...

...about to be fed




March 5th, the 2nd one leaves the nest
first flight
it didn't go too far, though
empty nest


March 7, front yard
on a monopod so pretty sharp


hummingbird tongue!!

selective focus
N.B. the same mother built a 2nd nest!
