365 Days, Numbah Fifty!

September 16th

This is definitely not a daily hummingbird; it’s the best shot I could get of the Cooper’s Hawk before he flew away.
Sign at da gym today. Haha!
Barely seen daily hummingbird in the sunset. But wait! Get more!!

Sometimes I just can’t choose one or two photos. Here’s why:

I especially love the one on the top right with the sun shining through his wings. Well, I love them all, actually.

See what I mean?

I can hardly believe I saw this magnificent manu and got the photo!!! Can you tell I’m excited? I even walked slowly outside and it s/he didn’t fly away for several minutes.

Such beauty!!

    How absolutely wonderful that the owl let you see him/her! That is such a gift. AND the Cooper’s Hawk! I love all of your hummingbird drama. Soooo much birdie activity. Thanks for sharing!

      It was incredible to see the owl! Even though s/he was checking out its meal for the day. Cooper’s Hawk, too. I’m so happy you liked all the photos… your support helps me to keep going on dis litto bloggie.

    With all the great hummingbird pictures you’ve got (especially love the first one with the sunset) you could do a crazy flip-picture book! Your horned owl visitor, wow, I get goosebumps just hearing them but on the rare occasion seeing one, I get your excitement!!! Awesome

      You’re right!! Maybe I should try and do that. Thanks! I love hearing the owls hooting to each other at night, and you’re right, seeing them is a whole new level.
