Things I Like To Do

Hi PhotoFriends,

I can’t put into words the excitement I am having photographing 📷 my ruby-throated hummingbirds the past four weeks. They are here so often throughout each day.

They put on such a show moving so fast on a perch. Poses I have never seen before

Put on your sun hat 👒🎩 and garden clogs to enjoy a stroll through my 🌸 garden

Here is my hummingbird’s 🐦 story:

Sometimes I like to be a fish 🐠 showing my outer beauty.

Sometimes I like to include new pictures of Mrs. Gardeners beloved ♥️ perennial garden, which was taken August 5th.

My buddies and me arrive early summer. I like it here because there are no hummingbird feeders, just delicious flowers.

https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-ddJCjfd/0/X2/i-ddJCjfd-X2.jpg

Thank you all so much for coming on this long perennial garden tour.

August 1st through August 5th has been the best hummer shooting I have ever experienced with the ruby-throated hummingbirds being perched for so many long periods of time doing so many unique poses that I have never seen before in pictures.

All I can say for this 2016 hummingbird season is YIPPEE!

Thank you for coming on my new tour.

I hope you enjoyed my new photos.

BB, you caught some marvelous poses of these little beauties. Wish I had even a fraction of your skill to capture some of the little ones around my place now.
