Where ya been, Cecily? I've haven't been on too much lately; too many things going on outside of photography. The damn doctors around here are trying to scare my wife to death. I don't get out to much for photos either. How is everything with you?

It's a she and she's trying to get away from me as fast as possible. I had three strobes set up to capture stop action, but the sun came out just as I snapped a five shot burst.

Let me explain. Today is rain, but when you look up there's a bright blue sky with three clouds. Tonight it will rain, but who cares because the sun will be out tomorrow too. It's a little cold today though, only in the 60s. Can't wait for those 80 degree days, probably next week.

She's almost still a baby, isn't she? How prescious! You know though, for such small little creatures, they can be treacherous! Ironic to say the least! :)

Actually there only aggressive amongst themselves, but they are fearless. The only thing they don't like is the strobe. If I'm outside without the camera they will hover near me. If I have the camera, they hide.

They have you pegged then don't they? How cute. That's what I meant when I said they are aggresive, with each other. I took one out of my cat's mouth once, saved his life. A chipmunk wasn't that lucky! :)

They are very smart! They love to hover around my wife and watch her garden. They know I take care of the feeders and I get a different chatter when they think something is wrong with the sugar/water soln. Some days we have constant air combat in the back and the front over who owns the feeders. They are quite comical to watch. I've never seen one hurt another, they just chase each other, In the evening they have to load up on food and the feeder becomes neutral ground. Cats are my mortal enemy. No cat feels safe in my yard nor should they. I won't even fave photo of a cat. I am a naturalist and feel cats are a non native predator and should not roam free. Anyone with a house cat that stays inside is OK. Cats seem to be a touchy subject with liberals, so I usually don't say anything. We had a coyote move in about 6 months ago and he took care of a few, but he moved on. I'd like another to move in.

I know exactly what you're saying! Before we moved, we lived in a very small town and we had tons of hummers there. I kept 3 feeders up at all times and they drained them once a day. They were so thick! I enjoyed them so much I didn't want to move. Where we live now, we rarely see any! It breaks my heart.
I've tried every way possible to get them here, but to no avail. That's why I'm enjoying yours so much. Thanks so much for sharing! :hug:

I lived in NJ and saw one when I was about 12 years old; I've been in love with them ever since. Did you live in AZ or NM?

No, it was a little town near the coast in Washington. I've lived in Washington since I was 4 years old.

I've been in CA for 13 years now, prior to that I lived in central Jersey most of my life. I spent 2 years in Brooklyn for school and lived in GA for 1 year then western NJ then NW NJ. I stayed close to the chemical industry, retired at 55 then moved to CA after reuniting with my HS girlfriend. I took a job in Pasadena as a research chemist and retired at 64, presently I'm a little short of 68(old fart). I keep myself in shape with weights and running and have a BB in karate. I was out of photography for ~30 years and got back into it in 08. I still like it.
