I finally got a hummingbird feeder hanging just outside my window.

The temperatures dropped this past weekend, so I haven't seen them as often in the past couple of days. I got these photos last week while sitting at my desk and looking through the open window. The hummingbird in the lemon tree really gives me a sense of their size.

I also found this homemade nectar recipe on the Smithsonian National Zoo park site.
Directions for making safe hummingbird food:
1. Mix 1 part sugar with 4 parts water and bring to a boil to kill any bacteria or mold present.
2. Cool and fill feeder.
3. Extra sugar water may be stored in a refrigerator.
4. Red dye should not be added.
Adding this to HeyHarriet's Shadow Shot Sunday.
