Sunday afternoon provided a plethora of photo opportunities, starting with this one. My first hummingbird at the feeder and also the first time I have taken a photo of one. Let me just say...it's not easy! But she perched right up there and drank her fill, allowing me to get several shots. I was/am ecstatic!
Then this lovely Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly landed right on a flower in front of me. I held my breath because they're tough to get clear photos of, too!
After these two exciting captures, I decided to take advantage of the changing shades of light and try to get a couple of shots of the few flowers left in my yard.
My old fashioned roses are still blooming. Pretty, huh?
As the sun was dipping further down toward the horizon, I couldn't resist capturing the golden light on these sunflowers.
I finally managed to get the natural sun flare! No need for Picmonkey in this one...
...or this one J
And in case you're wondering why there is an ugly pinwheel in the corner, it's there for my 2 yr old grandson. Every time he gets ready to leave he pulls it out of the ground, hides it behind his back, and tries to sneak it home with him. His parents make him put it back so it changes places frequently. I would let him have it but it's become a game now. J
The view from my front porch never gets old!
What do you see from your front porch?
