Observations from Everyday Life
If I sat in the window with a zoom lens I could take pictures of chipmunks all day. I have noticed my friendly neighborhood hawk sitting on my fence post several times recently. He must have noticed the buffet offerings in my backyard.
The hawk should help keep the chipmunk population down. However, they are fast. little, furry critters.
Love the picture of the ballooning balloon flower! And I love pictures of fungi.
I was going to write some more about the mushrooms this morning, but didn't have time. The whole class of fungi is very interesting.
I had never seen a balloon flower before. How fun! Thanks!
They are a perennial that was already here when we moved into this house. I hadn't seen them before that either.
I think the mushrooms were my favorite picture, though I did enjoy the hummingbird one a lot. I have that same feeder! It is quite difficult for me to catch them on camera, they are so fast-good shot ;)
Those hummingbirds are so fast. I have several pictures of an empty feeder. However, every once in a while one stays put for a while feeding.
I can't believe you got such a gorgeous picture of that hummingbird. They rarely sit still long enough for me to get a photo with my phone camera. I love all your flowers and need to start mixing in flowers here. I didn't think I needed to plant many flowers but can't find wild flowers to cut and miss having flowers in the house during the summer.
Every once in a while, a hummingbird will sit and take multiple drinks. If I can find my camera fast enough, I can sometimes get a picture.
What do you think?
