It's about time...


Look what I finally got.
I have wanted a picture of my humming birds for the last two years and I never got a chance.

My last failing attempt (yesterday)was really entertaining. I went to sit outside with my coffee, like I do every morning and I figured that I'd bring out my camera just in case the humming birds showed up. Not to my surprise, they did. I tried to turn on my camera and it didn't. I think I had to try three times till it turned on. (the battery was dieing) I focused on the bird and attempted to take a picture and it didn't do a thing. By that time that bird flew away. But I knew that it would come back so I sat and waited until it returned. Once it did, My camera didn't work fast enough and the bird was gone once again.
At that point I looked up into the heavens and asked God why he didn't want me to share this beautiful bird with my friends. Would he really want this to be just for me? I laughed it off and shared this story with many of my friends witch was very amusing for them.

Finally I have my shot. It was a great time in my life. Just wait, I'll probably get many pictures of them from now on. lol...

FAb! I always struggle with the whole thing of when to enjoy the moment and when to capture it. Mostly I capture it but sometimes i think i miss out on the just soaking up the experince as a result of it. Your pic is fab, and ticks both boxes, you have photographed somethng you enjoy other a period of time, and captured just a m,oment of it. If it was me i would be sitting thier with a camera all day every day taking more and more pics and forgetting just to enjoy!
