This morning while we were enjoying our extra day off from work, Wade decided to cook up a big breakfast. While he was standing by the kitchen window he commented that the feeder must be empty because the birds were all over the yard. There were a ton of them.
This isn't the best picture because I was taking it through the window, but just in this one little spot there were 9 birds. I opened the door as quietly as I could. Apparently not quiet enough.
Just when I thought it was time to put the camera away, Wade said there was a humming bird at the feeder outside the kitchen window. I look, no hummer. Oh yeah, way to tease me. I've been hoping to spot one of those all year and haven't seen even one. Then he tells me it's back. I quick grab the camera and away to the window I flew like a flash. I didn't however, tear open the shutters or throw up the sash.
Do you see that? It's my first hummingbird of the year. I finally got to see one. It was brief, I only got 2 shots, one of which was a total blur but I got a picture of a humming bird. My day was a success.
