Can we talk...

...cute

NOT to be confused w/Joan Rivers and a "dis" session...On the contrary
Happy Tuesday!
Before I post pics I just wanted to say that So Cal has joined in on the triple digit temps. But I'm not complaining. I've got a pool, A/C, lucky to have had cooler weather 'til now & lots of photos to edit that will keep me happily entertained. 


*Case in point! Is this little one stinkin' cute? Looks like I have a new found friend that sits on my patio every morning to watch the feeder. Did you know, hummers are constantly hours close to death? They are very social creatures but am still amazed he lets me get this close-especially when I have that big honkin' 55-250 lens coming right at him! Truth be told, as I slowly approach, (click click) I talk so sweetly & gently. (click click) Compliment him on how brave he is to let me see how good looking he is (click click) I was thrilled that I was able to snap this. I can while away the morning snapping pics of all my backyard critters!


*Me oh my... talk about cuteness overload...puffing up for me! I am adding this photo to Texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen cafe - I used her Robin's Egg Texture for this. He's a NATURAL beauty cutie huh?

Oh and Danbo?

*It goes without saying about how cute HE is!!
Happy Snapping!

  7. Swoon....I love birds....used to have eight at one time and when people would call our house they asked where I was! haha

    Yes, I did know that those little hummers get that close to death - it's amazing how low their heart rates go at night just so they don't starve to death. Nature is such a miraculous thing. Blogger is such a strange beast...I never saw your post come through my feed yesterday? Only now as I'm going back, weird....

    Oh, and P.S...I'm in love with Danbo!! ; )

  9. Hey there!!! All is good...I swear! Just a crazy busy summer and I don't have as much time to blog (which makes me sad!!!). Things are slowing down just a bit and I hope to be posting more. What a joy to see these photos! I have missed you! If you want to email me please do! caroline@nowordzphotography.com

  10. Um... It's cold here. Swear it is! Not complaining, but ... where's our triple digit heat? Today it looked as though it would haul off and storm, yet it didn't. Humid for sure, but chilly despite the fact. Weird weather everywhere it seems this summer. And I'm with you, the humidity really gets to me too!

    That said, GREAT photos and BEAUTIFUL processing!!

    Big ol' San Diego Hugs from me to you, girl!
