Well since completing the yard remodel I’ve seldom taken an opportunity to just sit with my camera and enjoy. Today was one of those times and I finally captured a hummingbird in pictures…at my house, YEAH!!!
Opening scene, a chickadee chills on a branch surveying the rebuilt bird feeder and some idiot ring-neck doves and Jays trying to figure things out.
Chicadee chill spot.
Then commences the hyper attack of the of the nectar gathering Hummingbird…on expresso!
Finally, my favorite shot of the day.
I hope you enjoyed this. I know I did.
I yearn for the day when I can once again walk trails, wade and fish streams, swim in our lake and enjoy the outside in general. Until then and beyond I will continue to celebrate the variety of birds that find our yard friendly. Enjoy!!!
Quite the commotion feeders cause as the temperatures start to fall, plants start becoming dormant, insect hatches decline. You’d almost think the ‘Bird-zombie apocalypse’ was coming on after observing behavior at the feeders and seeking the losers liking their wounds in the trees/bushes awaiting their next opportunity. One thing to note is that I have seen a lot of variety show up at the feeders this year I think partially because we moved to a lake community but also because we’re in the Central Flyway and there has been unusual weather.
Anyway, while I baby my detached Achilles tendon it is convenient to sit and take pictures from my screened in back porch. Though a couple are fuzzy I still hope you enjoy these. I know I did.
Downy Woodpecker, Adult Female
Drama at the feeder!
Spotted Towhee Female Front
Spotted Towhee Side
Another on of the side bit crisper contrast.
Alas, Fall is here.
Good day everyone.
Though we wand through life much like the 2 pictures I will share with you some wonder from time to time how many myths, gods and unseen forces shape our paths.
American Gods by Neil Gaman does not need much of a review from me because it has enjoyed huge, decades long success in multiple forms. Here I congratulate the work that is the 10th Anniversary full cast audio version for its quality and selection of cast members. I recommend this version in combination with your imagination while listening to paint your impressions across the screens of your brain. Five plus stars.
Life continues with bucks and a nuthatch frolicking in my AO. Enjoy!
