Hummingbird Whisperer Captures Close-Up Photos of Birds Visiting Her Backyard

Tracy Johnson has gathered quite the flock of feathered friends. This bird whisper spends at least half an hour every day hanging out in her backyard in Livermore, California, waiting for the local hummingbird crew to gather. Johnson uses handheld hummingbird feeders to get her feathered friends to come closer and then, if opportunity allows, snaps a quick shot before they fly away. She has gotten to know the birds pretty well, even naming the frequent visitors. Her hobby has grown into a gorgeous Instagram account featuring vivid close-ups of her hummingbird posse.
