This hummingbird nest is right outside my front door

It's only just over 6 feet off the ground, on the lowest branch of an oleander bush/tree. Of course my neighbor and I are constantly walking under it, which had the mother divebombing us a lot. It's surprising how hard it was to spot the nest at first. I suspect this is a first time mother, given the poor nest location.

Not particularly great shots, since I'm primarily a snapshot photographer, but I thought they were interesting enough to put up anyway.

    One baby had left the nest already, the other left today, so also pictures of empty nest.
