Awwwwwww.....thank you so much!!! I followed this guy around for a long time, flitting from one flower to the next, and then, all of a sudden he stopped! I am so glad I was ready to take some more shots! And that was a good thing because he didn't sit for long! ; ) Thank you so much for your kind comment!!

I've been observing hummingbirds for a few years and it seems that they more or less follow the same itinerary from a bloomed flower to another, stopping on bare branches to rest, stretch and observe you! After a few such encountered, they get used to you and let you take pics and get closer. I read somewhere that some birds e.g. mockingbirds remember faces. Hummingbirds might also do that. Another thing: they are very curious and bright colours attracts them. So, when A few times when I wore red t-shirts they flew around me very closely and stood still looking at me. I did not dare breathe. They are also very territorial: once they adopt your backyard, they'll chase away other visiting hummingbirds. Saw it with my own eyes. Amazing creatures!

Oh yes, to all you mentioned!!! I have had Hummingbirds feed, rest, preen, chase each other and nest in my backyard.....they have even "buzzed" me when they wanted to get to the feeder and I was standing near the feeder! Mine have gotten very close, and will even feed when I am only feet away. One year, a Momma Hummingbird even fed her chicks when I was standing close! : ) Such cute little guys with an attitude!! I love Hummers!! : )
