Sunday Stills - Fire And Smoke

I'm hoping Ed will re-run this challenge some other time. Between how kindling dry everything is and how stinkin' hot that I can't imagine adding any more heat of any sort (also known as the current reason why I'm not cooking dinner anymore ;-), I'm sitting out this week. I thought about taking pictures of our bee smoker, but decided it would stink up the air conditioned house too much and I sure as heck wasn't standing out in the driveway...

So, my other company from Epic Fiber Friday. Still not the hummingbird shots I'm hoping to one day catch, but considering these were taken in the shade, they aren't too bad.









And the look on this young bird's face is priceless.

If you biggify those photos it almost looks as though he's inviting you to join him for a sip of nectar. Great capture for greeting cards ;-)

Little Hummer looks a bit miffed to me. Can't you hear him mumbling, "What? you brought a camera and no sugar water!?!"
Great photography is usually about timing. I think you are a natural.

Our heat wave finally broke (for now) today! I hope yours does as well...

"Whatcha doin' lady? I'm not ready for my close up Ms. DeMille?"

Great hummer shots! They are a pain in the butt to shoot. We'll see about rerunning the challenge next spring..:-)

I loved the baby hummer shots! You did a marvelous job of capturing him in all his emotions.
