So anyway, most of what I've been up to is summer stuff like hiking, housesitting, birdwatching, birdcounting, vacationing, etc., all of it conducive to photo-taking. Sorry I neglected to share with you all. I even downloaded a blogger app to the iPhone, but never got around to actually posting anything with that either.
Here's a hummingbird I took a little over a month ago. The hummingbirds are still around of course, but the flowers reflected in the window are long gone. They turned brown a couple weeks ago and this past week my brother roto-tilled them to earn some money and prepare for a trench to add an irrigation system on the side yard.
