More Hummingbirds: Tiny Magnificent Creatures!

 I continually marvel at hummingbirds…such tiny magnificent magical creatures!

Their stunning colorful beauty, their speed, their zest for the “hummingbird life”….

It beats watching the news these days. It inspires my creative spirit and hope!

 I’ve  combined some poetry (Haiku), video footage and photographic images just for you!

 

Hummingbirds: A Haiku:

1.  Fluttering about

Zooming, oh, so rapidly

Marvelous colors!

2. Hummingbird magic

Unique, beautiful creatures

Don’t fly away, stay!

 

Here is a short video from today. See these lovely hummingbirds in action as they fly continuously over to the feeders and enjoy nectar, hover, and then dance away!

And now…some photographic images!

Hopefully these hummingbird images will captivate you and yours too!

Enjoy!

Osprey Perched at Torrey Pines State Beach- August 4, 2015

Somehow, during the past few years, I have become an avid bird watcher,

particularly at Torrey Pines State Beach.

I am always amazed at seeing Ospreys.

I’ve seen them perched high and also on the beach with prey.

I ‘m not sure how many are at Torrey Pines State Beach, but I have seen this one lately.

Today it was perched above “Flat Rock” and it flew towards other rocks.

Take a gander at this beautiful osprey.

Snapped with my Nikon Coolpix L830 and edited in Picasa.
