Surprise Results

The Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds are back atMuldoon
and recently one evening at dusk I was trying to capture them.
Due to the low light I was attempting to use manual settings.

When I brought this one up I was taken with the outcome
and love the color from the azalea reflecting on the bird.
(even though the 'subject' almost didn't make the shot)
I didn't apply any photo editing after the fact.

Then I created a Tag using Microsoft WORD
I have a lot to learn and was really pleased with this outcome.

Joining for the first time:


Entertaining Bird Week 052516

Papa on the lookout
Mama guards the nest
The cycle continues 
for the Red-Winged Blackbird.
Love how the nests are built on stilts above the water.

Welcomed the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds back this week.


POOL OPEN for the Summer
 It's been a perfect week for back yard bird watching

Tuesday's Treasures 052416

Treasures in the Rain

Joining:


Sunshine and Shadows 052416

Something about the sunshine and shadows 
through the leaves of our Japanese Maple
always seems to say 
"Good Morning. 
Why not start the day with some time on the swing
watching and listening to the birds?"


Trees give peace to the soul.
