Got ya...

I love hummingbirds… in fact it was another added benefit to moving to California, we see hummingbirds all year round.

For the past 2 months… since we moved to our new home I have been teased and taunted by the hummingbirds. Every time I am sitting outside without my camera they fly by and even stop at a few flowers. I run inside to get my camera and they do not come back. It is as if they are hiding just saying "lets have a little fun with this lady”.

L got a couple of shots of one but I was still without. This evening we were sitting outside (without camera in hand) eating some great Ben & Jerry’s Flipped Out ice cream cups that we scored at Costco today and low and behold the little bugger comes by again. So close we could practically touch him. He stopped at a flower for a good long time and even SAT still on a branch. AAAGH.

I finished my ice cream… I guess I do have my priorities and went inside to retrieve my camera. I sat and sat and waited…

Finally…

I got him… or her????
