Ruby Throated Hummingbirds at a Rose August 29 2010


today I was lazing by the rose bushes with a book. The hummingbird flew past and I grabbed the camera. The lighting was great but the rose is overexposed. My friend Janice (my master at photoshop) is going to try and fix it for me.

Today at the Rosetta McLean Garden Hawk Watch, Frank Carol and I saw a mixture of hawks and they were all fairly close. The lighting was quite bad but the photos are ok.
