Baby Hummingbirds

     This is the first time I have witnessed "baby" hummingbirds; in fact, I rarely see hummingbirds except when Mother was living in Seward. To actually photograph two/three day old very tiny "babes" is amazing. The photo was taken when I was on holiday in Palm Springs. Obviously, I have not had time to work on the "hidden" challenge. Smiles - the hummingbird nest is almost hidden it is so small and difficult to see. I wanted to share.

There's no sense of scale, but obviously since hummingbirds are so small, this must just be tiny. Amazing that you even noticed it! Great photo!
