Ruby-throated Hummingbird

A flash of harmless lightning, A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening From flower to flower he flies.

  12. I love hummingbirds. Just haven’t photographed any at my feeders this year, since the very first week. Backgrounds are not good. You’ve captured the color and texture of feathers so well.

  19. Hi Pat…Sorry it’s taken me this long to get over to visit with you and view this beautiful hummingbird!! [I love the quote your shared also!] The past week, I’ve had computer issues…the third time the cable company arrived, I think it’s finally fixed where it won’t lose connection any longer.

    You captured its gorget so nicely. Sometimes I get no color at all. Thanks for the encouraging words on my granddaughter’s blog post!

  21. Pat… I know how very painful that nerve pain can be. I am so sorry that you have it. It does suck the joy out of the day. I hope it improves soon because winter is coming as they say…hugs
