Once again raiding my archives to try and keep up with the photography 101 course… Where does all the time go?

Come summertime I admit to being just a teeny-tiny-wee-bit obsessed with hummingbirds! I have a strategically placed plant that I hide behind with my camera to try and get the perfect shot. They are the most fabulous birds and really quite unafraid of anyone or anything – well maybe except for my mutt. He thinks he needs to protect me from all the birds/moths/insects/leaves by barking ferociously at them.
