I had good intentions. Really, I did. The other day I took photos of cardinals, blue jays, and sparrows at my feeders and noticed their heads were bowed in almost every photo. Okay, so maybe the rain pelting down on their heads had something to do with it. Anyway, I had this whole post in my head of the cardinal leading them all in prayer. Then today happened. This little male juvenile ruby-throated hummer appeared. He has not even had his first winter yet. Junior was brave enough to take a big drink from the newly placed feeder on my palm tree. Thank goodness for high speed continuous mode because after 4 shots he was outta there. I was very pleased to get 2 good photos of him by the palm tree.
