My husband was gone a good bit of the time this past weekend. So what else is a girl to do? Fix herself a delicious healthy dinner (see Leftover Cedar Plank Salmon), pour herself a nice glass of Pinot Noir, grab her camera and head out to the back patio to try and catch the hummers in action. I have to admit, it was quite a challenge to photograph them but I had a lot of fun in the process. Here is some of what I saw (of course, I took over 100 images!) Gotta love digital cameras :)
They really liked the blossoms on my lemon tree but I had a very hard time capturing them savoring the nectar. I'm going to keep trying on that one, though! It's kind of hard to see, but if you look closely, you can see a hummingbird towards the top middle of this picture.
Darkness came and it was time for me to stop for the night. It was a really fun evening. And such a beautiful Texas sky at dusk.
