Flight of Fancy

Whenever I want a photo of the hummingbird, I just take a seat, and she'll be there within 10 minutes or less. Because of that, I haven't tried too hard to capture her image since returning in January, but I think this rounds out the animals in what I call my "Peacable Kingdom".

This morning the 2 mallards and squirrel were having breakfast together and the crows were signaling me from above. I keep giving them peanuts, but must give pasta a try!
A wonderful capture of this very fast little bird, caught as she was humming along! fav

Great capture.

The hummingbirds must be out in full force. I caught several of them yesterday. But unlike you, I have no hummingbird feeders in my yard, so I needed to trek to the nature preserve, where they were plentiful. And impatient.

This nice pic. try to talk me into a new series of broches. Sorry I`m to busy now with necklaces. Nearly ready with 6 new ones.

@pyrrhula I can relate to "busy"! Your work is so beautiful, Ferry, and I know you get a lot of satisfaction from making it! (My apologies for not writing you for so long! I will do so soon one of these days!)

This is just gorgeous Louise! I am so jealous that this little beauty comes to your garden! So many lovely animals and birds! Fav!

Thanks Louise. Do n`t worry and do n`t hurry. Patient is my nick name. Some numbers . I made them with 30 beads. 6 x 30 beads = 180. wooden beads. That made 360 stainless steel ends , 180 in s.s. betweens and 6 locks. That means: lot of work.

This is sooooo pretty, Louise! Nice action capture! Fav.

Fantastic! That new lens is paying huge dividends. I should have taken @terryliv and Rhoda to your house rather than our silly attempts at the SJC Mission where we ran around like fools trying to chase one down.

@stray_shooter When were they here??? If it was any time recently, I'm sad you didn't ask Ken and me to join you...OR...I would have loved to have entertained everyone here for a bbq dinner and wildlife photography in our back yard!

@Weezilou I suggested to @stray_shooter that he should let you know but he said that he didn't want to have to share us around.

That's a cracking shot by the way.
