After eight long days, the snow of 2021 is finally melting, and we are left with slush and drizzle – welcome to the first Monday of 2022!
A strange number for a year, don’t you think?
When I was growing up all the years started with NINETEEN and rolled easily off the tongue. 1960, 1970, 1980 – you could pick any two and easily calculate the distance between them. Back then, 1984 was futuristic and 2001 was a distant science fiction movie!
Granted, we’ve been in the two thousands for more than 20 years already – I guess I should move on, huh? Okay, will do! 😉
During these days of snow and freezing temperatures I managed to post on my blog almost daily. The same thing happened during a previous major snow event- Snowmageddeon in 2019, when I also posted on Hummingbirds in the Snow. I couldn’t get as close then with my Sony as I can now with my Lumix. (Did I mention how happy I am with my new camera?)
I heard this one in the evergreens above my yard and zoomed into his world.
“You again,” he seemed to say as he turned my way.
Yes, indeed, time to go.
Happy Hummers to you!
When I was a teenager, I expected to be living on another planet by 2022.
They let me down!
Best wishes, Pete.
Exactly! Whoever thought 2022 would be so ordinary! Well, except for a world-wide pandemic!
And I don’t even have a flying car! Cheated! 🙂
Our feet and cars are still firmly planted on the ground! 😉 🚙
I love Hummingbirds…filled the feeder yesterday and they have been playing around it ever since! Terrific photos as always!
Thanks so much, John! I love hummingbirds too; they’re so charming and full of personality!
Yes indeed! We had three on the feeder at the same time today – first time that happened!
How cool! I sometimes have two at a time, but rarely 3. They love you! 🙂

Time moves much too quickly! Beautiful photos. ❤️
Yes, I agree! Thank you!
Seems like you’re getting to grips with your new camera. I love the top photo, not just for the execution, but for the idea, too. Nicely done!
Thanks so much, Graham! I am indeed enjoying my new camera!
Happy New year 2022.
Thanks! You too!
Great to see how well you’re getting on with the Lumix, and getting such great shots with it too!
Thank you so much! I’m having fun with it, especially with the birds! It’s lighter than my Sony and easy to handle.
I see that new camera perfectly caught the scarlet neck ruffle on that hummer! WONDERFUL!!
I agree about the amazing red neck. I have never been able to see one hold still long enough to see it and am grateful that your photography skill is so stellar.
Thanks so much! I feel really fortunate that these lovely little birds visit my yard daily, so I get a lot of opportunities to practice!
I guess I never think of all the photos you don’t share with us!
Probably 100 to 1! But I’ve shared so many hummingbird pictures I’m afraid you all will tire of them. But too hard to resist!
I cannot grow tired of hummingbird pictures, never fear.
Good to hear! 🙂
