December 24th

I found a hive of humming birds across from some tennis courts in Palm Springs. I had several favorite photos I took, but this is the one that made the final selection. I realize I need a better camera, I can't freeze a humming bird mid-air. I must have taken 200 photos, my trick was just to take photos of black backgrounds with the focus set at where I thought they would appear. If I was lucky, by the time I snapped the photo there might be a bird in it. This little creatures move so fast it is unbelievable.

If I ever move to a climate that supports humming birds I am going to get 10 feeders like this lady had.
