Hummingbird mama and babies!

I love hummingbirds, I see them hurriedly flying around here and there from beautiful bloom to beautiful bloom, drinking in the sweet nectar those blooms have to offer.  I, however, had never seen a hummingbird nest......until now!!!!  A friend of mine discovered a hummingbird nesting in her Lime tree recently!!!  I went over there,camera in hand, and stared in amazement, at the beautiful, tiny, colorful mama hummingbird sitting cozily on her beautiful, teeny, tiny, carefully crafted nest.  I took some pictures of this wonderful scene.  Mama hummingbird never left her nest, so I was not able to photograph her tiny eggs.  A few days later I was able to go back and photographed her tiny babies, two of them.  Oh my, they are so very tiny.  Here are a few of the pictures for you to enjoy.  So, so wonderful and beautiful.  I thank God for giving me the chance to observe these tiny miracles of life in person.   ♥Love♥
