next to you i feel safe | baby hummingbirds!

Someone at work found a hummingbird next just outside our building. They're the cutest little things, and they didn't show any signs of distress or fear as I was photographing them. In fact, one of them closed an eye and started to take a nap.

I don't know how much longer these guys will be nesting, so I'm going to try to get as many shots of them as I can manage. I sense it may only be a few weeks before they start learning to fly. I haven't seen theimom flying around, but it would be great to get a shot of her feeding them. Because of the nest's location (slightly hidden under some some tree foliage) I'm not sure I'll have an unobstructed view for that, though. Fingers crossed....
