Humming bird photography by Trish Schooley
Trish had the pleasure of photographing a perfect little hummingbird nest camouflaged in a tree in Nancy Pinckert’s garden. It was captivating to view at almost eye level, the intricately finished nest where the patient mother sat to hatch her eggs. Next visible were two babies, their fine feathers covering tiny heart beats. Soon their heads appeared over the top of the nest, and within days, light caught the color in their wings. Perched in what was left of their nest, the babies were about to take flight. The empty nest shows a close up of spider webs attaching the nest to the tree branch and around the nest to allow it to expand as they babies grew larger. Nature is so amazing!
