There are many things that I love about where we live now. I love the community. I love having a backyard for the kids to play in. I love the garden space. I love the quiet… and lately, I LOVE the fact that we have tons of Hummingbirds in our backyard. I honestly could sit at the window and watch them for hours… or stand outside with a camera and photograph them. I’m always amazed at how fast they are… and there are a lot of images that have ended up out of focus, but with summer just around the corner, I’m sure we’ll have lots more opportunities to get our “perfect” shot. In the meantime, I’m pretty happy with these ones from the last couple of nights, when either Eric or I have grabbed the camera and popped outside to capture them!

The red on the throat is amazing… and only seen at certain angles or in certain light. The colour also changes slightly, depending on how the light catches it!
