Kitties!

A teeny tiny tippler visited the hummerbird feeder...




Who knew Miss Bee had a tongue?


Happy Tuesday!

  4. Fantastic shots! I can't wait to have a humming bird feeder when we move to Southern CA. There are tons of those beautiful birds in the desert there. Love them!

  8. Very cool pictures, indeed. Did someone get a zoom lens for Christmas? I think I can hear the indignant howls halfway across the country for leaving the cats out of the blog. The nerve.

  9. Just to let you know, Katnippers, that your blog has been hijacked by a bee! The perfidity!!! ;)

  10. And in fact Miss Bee's tongue is much like a straw, and as you can see, sort of pinkish red. :) She and her sisters have to get a lot of moisture out of that hummer food to make honey. In fact, sugar water makes lousy honey for human consumption, but it'll get the bees through a tough winter (or make for easy pickings when out foraging.)

    I had to move one of my hummingbird feeders last summer when my honeybees found it. It was just a little too close to my beehives... :)

  27. I do not like bees. They sting me. And it hurts. I do not like bees at ALL.

  28. Wow!
    What's that old saying when something cool is the bees knees?
    That tongue is the bees knees!

  29. Miss Bee is lucky she wasn't impaled by a sharp hummer bill!!
    Those hummers are pretty territorial.
    Your photographer got some excellent pics!!
