For the Love of Hummingbirds…

HUMMINGBIRDS. The smallest of all birds they are native to the Americas and comprise the biological family. Trochilidae. With about 360 species, they occur from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, but the vast majority of the species are found in the tropics (source: Wikipedia )

If you’ve followed along with me for a while you know that for the past 4 years hummingbirds have been one of my favorite photography challenges. They are sneaky and quick. You never know when they will appear. I have spent countless hours waiting and watching for these tiny garden fairies to appear, hoping to get the perfect shot!

I had almost given up on them this year. And it seems like a lot of other hummingbird watchers had given up as well. But, the past few weeks these little garden fairies seem to be making their appearance. This little guy gave us quite the show the other night.

They say hummingbirds spiritually represent inspiration and hope, and can be a guiding light that can move you closer to fulfilling your dreams. I don’t know about moving me closer to fulfilling my dreams, but I do know they bring inspiration to my photography!

Here’s to a new week filled with inspiration!

Red Sky in the morning……

Beautiful Atlanta Sunrise

“Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.” This photo doesn’t do the morning sky justice, but I couldn’t resist trying to capture the moment. ⁠

BTW, see that big tower in the background? That’s soon to be the new North American Headquarters for Thyssenkrupp Elevator Company. It’s over 400 feet tall and is located next to the Braves Stadium. Michael has literally watched this come out of the ground when there was nothing more than a pile of dirt. Take a close look, you’ll be seeing more of this when it’s complete. 😉⁠

Happy Thursday!⁠
