The Weekly Photo Challenge – Time

Our daughter Casie discovered this hummingbird nest in our backyard about a week ago.  Since then, every time we have checked our new backyard guest, the Mother Hummingbird has been sitting contentedly in her nest.

I believe that she is a Calypte Anna – According to the Audubon site:

“Incubation is by female only, 14-19 days. Young: Female feeds the young, sticking her bill deep into their mouths and regurgitating tiny insects, perhaps mixed with nectar. Age of young at first flight about 18-23 days.”

14-19 days.  Time.

What are you doing over the next 14-19 days?

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.

  1. Beautiful! I love this quote about hummingbirds “Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.” -Papyrus
