My Lucky Twig by pixelchix

My Lucky Twig

Didn't leave the house today...but I was lucky enough to grab these shots of a couple of visitors to our tiny backyard. I got really lucky with the Anna's Hummingbird shot...the little male Dark-Eyed Junco had been twitting about on and near that branch a lot, so I was waiting for him and guess what flew in instead? Right place, right time. ;-)

Thanks again for all of your sweet comments, really means a lot.

Happy Friday Ya'all!

P.S. I resisted the temptation to put textures on these to make it more artsy...aren't you proud of me?
Wow... Great captures!

Nice capture! I can never get a hummingbird!

that hummingbird is so beautifully marked! great job. I keep not having my camera around at the right place lately - wanting to catch a hummingbird myself. the Junco looks kind of pissed. haha. Sorry you've been in a funk. But get this - Tony is starting to spend some time with Ruby. They played today for a long time. He's quite gentle with her. oh joy oh joy. . .I never thought this day would come. We're not there, but we seem to be on the road to there. . .xoxoxo
