I’m still on DC time so I woke up early thinking of the hummingbirds. I went out in my robe and boots to bring in the frozen feeders, returning them outside an hour later. The hummingbirds came immediately and rewarded me by posing. I… Continue Reading “My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds”

‘Tis the Season for Hummers

November has come on strong and stormy as it often does in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps that’s why I’m seeing more hummingbirds at the feeders; it’s easier for them to get their food fast and ready to go without fighting against the wind and… Continue Reading “‘Tis the Season for Hummers”

A Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

A single photo??… Continue Reading “Some Favorite Photos for #Bloganuary”

The Promised Snow Has Arrived! And Hummingbirds, too!

It was only a tease yesterday, the promise of a White Christmas for those who care about such things. But this morning the snow appeared, clothing the evergreens with its beauty and providing joy in the Great Northwest! I bundle up and venture outside… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Arrived!

It’s time for another Sunday Stills Challenge and it’s all about Metallic, which for my purposes is defined as having a quality of metal that includes shiny, lustrous or sparkling colors!
