Day 290—Part 2—Fun With Dick And Jane

Fun with Arnold and Maria? Maybe with Arnold and Jerry? I can’t tell.

I’m having a great day so far and it’s not even 8:15AM yet. When I noticed that the fountain was not bubbling, I refilled it and Arnold and another hummer, I’m not sure if it’s a male or female because their gorgets are both very red in certain lighting, were waiting for the water to be replenished and while I sat a couple of feet away, they flitted and bathed for me. While bathing, one kept right behind the bubble, almost out of sight and I didn’t want to get up for a better vantage point because I knew they’d leave if I did. So I kept shooting while they bathed and flitted about.

Day 290—Red Sky At Morning

I don’t think any sailors need to take warning just yet but I looked out a few minutes ago to see if there might be some clouds that I could photograph for today’s Flickr challenge, “weather.” I was greeted with this glorious red sky. I underexposed this a stop because once again I was up in the middle of the night watching Moose Peterson videos and that’s something I learned when photographing skies and landscapes in order to make the colors pop. I love you Moose!
