A Critter and a Bird

You never know what's on the other side.
And you'll never know if you don't climb the fence.

Catching Light 081715

I'm looking forward to this Meme,

Capturing light, texture etc.
is one of the things I love about photography.
Such as how the white siding and the shadow
emphasizes the vivid color of the geranium.
to discover the beauty of illumination.

Hummingbird at Rest

Was surprised to find her sitting for so long.
Then I learned they are very territorial
and often perch to guard the area.
In this case it was a large juicy RED Gladolia.
The ruby-throated are the only hummingbird
east of the Great Plains in the U.S.
Except for the Rufous which sometimes appears
in the Gulf and South Atlantic States.
