Ruby-Throated Hummers

Sharing my first (photography) experience with a moving hummingbird.


I spotted her at Mill Landing,

Flitting wildly from flower to flower…


Sipping this, and trying that.


I did my best to keep up.

But each time I thought I had a capture, off she’d flit to another blossom!


But you know what?

I think there’s something kinda’ nice…

About not being able to CONTROL the beauty that we see in nature.


Which I suppose leaves us (silly humans) with nothing to do, but to enjoy and admire!  😉


And they sure are somethin’….  Now aren’t they???   ❤

All Things Come

Someone once asked me if I was ever able to capture our local Mamma Osprey feeding her young.

Because of the angle/distance I have to shoot at from below the nest, for a very long time the chicks were impossible to see during feedings.

And by the time they grew tall enough to be seen in the nest, they were pretty much feeding themselves.

Today, for whatever reason, one hungry chick that appears to be the smallest of them all…


Had Mamma all to herself for a real FEAST!


I guess all things do come, to those who wait.


And wait, and wait, and wait.  😉

Won’t You Miss Me??

I sure am going to miss these Piping Plovers, when they’re all grown and flown.


The tiniest birds, with the huge personalities.

It’s been an amazing experience, documenting them this season.

May they all fly high and well, in their lives ahead.


And come visit us again, real soon.  ❤
