The title is the answer to the question, “Why do Hummingbirds hum?” Ok, my brain is too tired at the moment, so don’t make fun of my goofy jokes!
Monday was a frustrating day in some ways and good in others. I was up WAY too early, 4am, which I thought I had left back in New Jersey. Regardless, I got up and got myself together. I was going to be visiting with my friend Tonja to help her coordinate her wardrobe for her trip to Croatia. Turns out, she didn’t need help with that, she just wanted us to have a little time together to talk and relax. She made Croatian coffee, we had some sweet snacks (I’ve got to stop all of this “extra” eating!!) and sat out on her patio. It was very nice and I enjoyed the chance for just the two of us to talk.
While sitting there, I decided to try my hand at taking photos of the many hummingbirds that come to her feeders. When we were in California, we spent a lot of time watching the hummingbirds at my cousin Kim’s house. But I wasn’t able to catch any photos of them. I think I did better here.
I think they turned out pretty well. Now if only I had gotten a photography tip from my friend, Patti, before I had taken these. She told me I need to use the “running man” setting on my camera for speed and movement. I have to check the camera now to find that!! Guess I’ll just have to go back and spend another morning looking at the hummingbirds!
Oh yes, there were humans involved, too.
Me and Tonja when she brought me home. Yes…she IS that tiny!! She’s a great lady and we had great fun!
Since we’ll only be here a few more days and since we can’t seem to find someone to fix the fridge, we’re just going to forget about it until our next visit (Which will hopefully be soon AND will be when we actually move here!) Then we also realized that our wonderful air mattress bed that we love so much has a leak! So one of today’s projects is finding the leak… 😦
