For FOREVER I have wanted to photograph a Humming Bird.
Try as I might, they always proved illusive UNTIL last evening.
I spotted one out of the corner of my eye and because it was farther away than I wanted, I hurriedly changed to my telephoto lens — even then it must have heard me trying to sneak up on it, or maybe it heard me GASP at the thrill, but this was the only shot I got off successfully.
Humming Birds amaze me.
This summer has been HOT but especially windy.
Several gardeners have been heart sick at the toll the wind has taken on their summer blooms.
However, visiting one of my favorite local gardens, they have managed to keep much of the color and splendor.
Tucked inside a grove of Evergreens, this field of Hollyhocks and Sunflowers took my breath away.
I hope your summer days are taking your breath away.
