Hummer - the winged variety
This morning I ate my breakfast on the patio by the new "water feature." There were probably six hummingbirds chasing each other around the yard and over the fence into the neighbors. I grabbed my trusty little digital and got my 2nd wonderful picture in two weeks. Isn't he gorgeous?
The honeysuckle seems to be their favorite attraction.
The sparrows and finch were not safe from these little buzzing menaces. It is amusing for me to watch the house sparrows attempt to escape the rufous and his acrobatics.
It is so beautiful I don't wan't to go to work. Well, I wouldn't want to go to work irregardless of what the day is like. I'd rather sit out there all day with my camera and my binoculars. I think my next purchase will be a tiny laptop so I don't have to blog indoors.
I would like to set up my water color table out there as well. The Contessa, our cat shares my love for watercolors. Several times I have discovered her sprawled across my wet paints, or the wet surface of a new work of "art." (ô¿ô)
I should set up spot on my table just for her. With my luck, she would become a world famous artist and leave me to tour her world of admirers.
