Surprise for WPC 4/12/17


I was sitting outside, at the table on my sister’s deck, trying to capture a good photo of one of her many hummingbirds. She has several feeders as well as a ton of flowers all around so the photo opportunities were abundant. I even put a feeder right in the center of the table, inches away from me but still was not that happy with the shots I was getting.

I got this one…

And then this…

But the one that surprised me was THIS!!  Look carefully. (I call it “Incoming”!)

And then my favorite.

I almost erased it until I really looked at it!!!

I’m so glad I didn’t delete it. I LOVE this picture!

Who knows what else we miss when we don’t really look closely….

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. Your pictures are perfect for this week’s photo challenge, especially the last two 🙂
    For some reason I thought of humming birds too when I thought of ‘Surprise’. I guess because it was surprising to have spotted one in my patio last summer when I had for large pots full of blooming Sweet Alyssum.

  2. I have never gotten a good shot of a hummingbird. That first one is great. But you’re right…the last one, the surprise, that one is luscious!!! Been away, now I’m back, maybe. Missed your stuff.
