As if lush, winter-flowering bushes weren't enough to make me love where I live, a family of hummingbirds has moved in. I've counted at least three so far. They play in the fountains and hang out in the trees, and I feel as happy as a kid on Christmas every time I see them.
|Can you see it? This is the fountain in my little backyard.|
Hummingbirds are the dangedest to photograph, especially on a dim, cloudy morning.
|This one's playing in the fountain in the courtyard out front.|
|It may look like a sparrow or chickadee, but don't be fooled. |
In better light you'd see the bright green back and ruby red throat.
