Thanks, Neal ~

It was a whole lot of fun. I'm pretty much stuck at home this whole summer, so I do all of my bird photography in my backyard. Here's the full photo of the hummingbird coffee mug filled with a "bouquet" of the DIY flower feeders:

I’m wondering the same, looks like a pair of snails. Must be a French krestel, with escargot! ;-)a

Something different, for fun..... Last year my wife did a canvas painting of one of my hummingbird photos as a surprise birthday present for me, and I in turn made it into a coffee mug as a surprise X-Mas present for her. Since I love taking photos of hummingbirds, I thought I'll take photos of them feeding off of the hummingbird coffee mug. To do so, I made some tube feeders consisting of 1) single stem flower water pik used in flower shops and filled them with my home-brewed nectar; 2) fake flowers from a Dollar Store and painted red to attract hummers; and 3) Perky-Pet feeder replacement flowers.

Its a snail kite having its breakfast 2 snails. Another snail kite was flying over, and keeping an eye on the kite flying over, not to steal his breakfast, he dropped his snails into the drink.

I really felt for the kite.

That is just hands down really cool!

Just this afternoon after work I was in my own yard lamenting the lack of flowers to attract more hummingbirds (I didn't get any planted this year and my hibiscus is dying), and I was wondering how one might do something like this and there is your post when I get inside! :-)

Same here, I don't have natural flowers that hummers are attracted to in my yard, so I resort to both commercially available feeders and my DIY feeders, such as the ones I made with frisbees and the "water pik feeders." With the water pik feeders, there are so many imaginative ways of using them, for example:
