I sat under a tree today....
But it was all about steel...
Note on the '57... I'm not a real '57 fan just because there are so many of them but this one was exceptional and I actually liked the effect of the cheapo starburst filter on the chrome.
Hope you enjoy.
The new kids are out and about. This young Anna's female has really taken to me and will let me get within 1 1/2 feet of her with the lens. With the 100mm macro she will fill the frame. This is a crop out of the actual image. It is not enlarged. Hope you enjoy.

Crank me up baby
Go-back Machine Crank
And it's that time of the year again. I'd rather shoot these than flowers any day. The yard has turned into a gang turf war between the resident Anna's and three of these Male Rufous Hummingbird Hooligan.
Have a ducky week. I'm sorting shots from last weekend in Central Oregon.
If you are going to feed them clean your feeders at least every week.
DO NOT use that premix with the red dye in it or add red dye to food that you mix on your own. It has been proven to mess with the birds kidneys.
It is easy to mix your own food. All you need is 1 cup of hot water and 1/4 cup of white sugar. They don't care what brand.
Contrary to popular belief I am still alive....
Well not quite but busy anyway.
The good news is my first illegal Mexican immigrant of the year showed up today! This photo isn't him from this year but very well could be the same bird. Male Rufous Hummingbird. He has hit one of the feeders and has been checking out the others. Just for spite here is a Grecian Wildflower for you while I'm here.
Have a ducky day. I'm back to uploading and keywording stock images.
On this wave shot... do you think there is too much wave in it? Is the size perspective messed up because of it? Another Wave
No need to vote on these. I'm looking for input more than anything else but.... I want it on the size and not the tonal range. We've been down that road.
To be a bee or not to be...?
All are hand held, 40D and Canon 100mm F2.8 macro.
Hope you enjoy. The next sign of spring will be the Rufous showing up. That will be within the next three weeks. The resident Anna's will not be thrilled about having to share their feeders.
