“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

I sat outdoors on the patio for hours this past Sunday afternoon; the weather was just ideal for this time of year. The temperature was a balmy 75 degrees, a slight sea breeze, and clear blue skies!!! I had just finished cleaning out the zinnia flower boxes in the yard along the foundation of the house [two boxes]...and took a break while watching one lone female humming bird with her busy, busy, work---and I took pictures!!! Boy did I take pictures. Twelve I believe besides this one. And I added all the really 'good ones' on my photo blog yesterday morning!! In three parts. She was so full of vim and vinegar so to speak, at one time, even showing her backside to me...well, I never!!! The nerve! How rude. But oh so cute and fun. I just couldn't help myself; clicking away like I did---

  14. How sweet, we dont get humming bird here in the UK but I do get rude birds pointing their backs and bottoms at me when I want to photograph them. They can be very uncooperative when it comes to camera's. XXX Don
