Yesterday, I posted “It’s Time” and today, it IS time…for a bath. Not mine (I hate baths) but for my favorite bathers, the hummers. There were three out there this morning, all jousting for a position in the fountain. When I went outside, they retreated to the nearby branches, preening, and flitting about, waiting for me to leave. It was cold outside and unfortunately, I plunked myself down without thinking, on a wet seat so my terrycloth bathrobe was immediately soaked. I knew I couldn’t stay there too long because I was chilled and since I am trying to shake a cold that lingers on, I’m certain this was not a wise move on my part. But, persistence pays and after a couple of minutes, time that allowed me to make the exposure adjustments I wanted, one of the hummers, the tiniest one, tentatively at first, returned to finish his/her bath. I love the second shot because the wings aren’t blurred but neither shot is in tack sharp focus. Still working on that!
