Just beyond the courtyard area, hummingbirds feed on the extra-tall hibiscus bush at Sarah’s home.

Like the hummingbird sipping nectar from every flower, I fly joyfully through my days, seeing beauty in everything.

(Conocoto Ecuador)  Earlier this month, my friend Sarah mentioned that the hummingbirds did not come to the feeder, so she stopped using it. Between the Good Friday parade and Saturday’s wedding, another friend, Lynnda and I added a few creative colors in hopes of luring the hummers to the feeder.


(It was a bronze color — I think!)   Two cats also decorate the courtyard area where the feeder hangs (quite high) — Do you think that the cats’ presence affects the hummingbirds’ patterns of flight?


“Oh, no; I”m not going to come closer when a natural supply is out here!”

We’ll stretch way back for an oldie that stretches back 40 years… Perhaps many of you have already guessed it:

Playing a bit on the computer with “Paint,” I took the feeder one more step with color, which we might have done if we’d have had more time! What do you think? Should we add a little more contrast?  The birds don’t care, but perhaps the eye does!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s been a busy week, and there are lots of images to share; I haven’t stopped to photograph and upload to the computer!

This post should reach you via magic of scheduling a draft. If it works, see you tomorrow!  – Z
