A quiet place to relax and take a peek at some thoughts and images from my studio and farm. Hopefully you will find something to amuse you. Please leave a comment if it is worth your time.

Yesterday I captured this feeding frenzy of Rufous Hummingbirds. I'm not sure what other breeds might be represented here. If you know, please tell me. There were so many, it was unbelievable! I was afraid I would be stabbed when I walked across the deck. This has never happened though, they are good at dodging humans. They will land on my finger if I put it up to the feeder. Sometimes they come into the porch room and go to the window to try and get out and will never turn around and go back out the door to escape. They are dumb that way. So I have to be vigilant and rescue them daily. I have tried to take a picture of them in my hand as I open it but they either fly away so fast or they will be in shock and lie in my hand. That picture looks like a dead bird in hand so I haven't posted that one. I have several pictures of my open palm, birdless. The birds sure are entertaining.
