the August Break begins

Hummingbird at the feeder

As I was sitting inside yesterday trying to figure out what I would photograph for Day 1 of the August Break, my hummingbird came by for a visit (yes, I call him my hummingbird).

When I moved from the house in the woods where I had lots of hummingbird visitors, I thought there is no way I’d get one to visit my 3rd floor apartment.  But a few months ago I decided to put out a feeder in hopes that ‘if you build it, they will come.’  A few weeks ago I happened to look up the instant a hummingbird landed at the feeder.  I was so very excited, I sat and waited for him to return.  He never did that day but has several times since.  So yesterday when I saw him, I ran to get my camera and waited, actually stalked is more like it.  He visited several times but was always so fast that these are the only photos I was able to get.
