Sharing moments in time…

A few minutes in my backyard….


Couldn’t decide what to post today so thought I’d just sit by some flowering bushes in my backyard to see what flew by…….

Orange Hummer

My first visitor was what I think is a Rufous Hummingbird.  They’re elusive little guys but I managed to get this one in pretty good focus.

There weren’t as many other birds around as there usually are so I figured I’d practice on some bees – got this guy as he was coming into a landing on this flower.

    • AnnChristine – Thank you – and you’re right about the hummingbirds – I never get tired of watching them. I also didn’t realize that many places do not have hummingbirds until some of my Scot and English friends told me they didn’t have any local hummers.
