Hummmmm

I love hot sunny weather in the summer and cold snowy days in the winter but here in the Fraser Valley, winter days are long, dark, gray and rainy. Blah!

What better thing to do when one is confined to the indoors for fear of rusting, is to sort through photos of a beautiful little birdie, the Rufous Hummingbird.

I got so many great shots this past spring and summer, a couple which I entered into a photo contest. They were not chosen but that’s ok as my photography is a hobby I do for myself.

Some of these photos I’ve posted and others I have not. It was hard to narrow down a few favourites so the following ones are those that made the cut.  Here’s a little bright spot on this dark, gloomy day. I hope you enjoy.
