I sat on the deck with a cup of coffee and the sun in my face as I do most other mornings, thinking I probably should get my camera. There's that "photo a day" thing but it's so comfy here...this coffee is so good....I really don't feel like it.. maybe tomorrow. Moments later a hummingbird came within 5 ft. of me and literally hovered in front of me looking directly at me. Did I look like a big flower? Maybe. I do love my fuzzy pink and red polka dot robe. The lighting was beautiful and all I could do was watch, amazed by this tiny little bird. These images are from after that lesson. I had to wait quite a while for him to come back... and he brought a friend. They aren't perfect pictures but something I will remember. The business and art of photography is not a spectator sport. Be there. Be ready. Get dirty. Get the shot.
