Default Got Him!

I've been hobbling out on my crutches to the back deck in the early morning for a week to try and get a hummingbird that's been flittering through the garden. Saw him far off or not at all. This morning he got in range. Threw in a monarch that happened to come by. It's was amazing how excited I felt putting the card in the computer wondering what I got. Fun.

So glad you were able to "shoot" him! Photo # 2 of the hummer is outstanding!

PS - Hope & pray your recovery is proceeding well (and quickly!!)
