the birds and the bees.... no, flowers...

Today's Greeting

Contrasting textures ...

Big daisy, tiny bird...

Morning Helen! The daisies are beautiful. They grow wild in my gardens and yard if I mow around them! The hummingbird seems to be missing in my gardens this year! I had one on Mother's Day and that is the last I saw! It was so cold in April that maybe they decided to go back south raise a family and say the heck with that freezing north country!!! :-( I hope they come back!

Helen: The Hummingbird at rest was a super capture. I also enjoyed the Chickadee, I saw two in the Buckeye Tree but had no camera.
My duck and sparrow picture was a lucky capture. I was taking pictures of the duck and the sparrow showed up on the computer. Old eyes don't see everything.

Good morning, Helen,
The card is stunning! I love to see hummingbirds perched. I don't see them doing it very often. Beautiful flowers, and a cute little finch is appreciating them, too.

Beautiful images surrounding you today! The first looks like it is under an umberella! Oh that hummer how I remember seeing the same while in Arizona...my heart leaps when I catch them on camera resting!

I like the dreamy effect you added to the daisy picture.

Those are beautiful! I love the goldfinch on the daisy. Beautiful hummer. I am not getting any this year and it really puzzles me.

The hummer is beautiful but that hibiscus, WOW! It looks dinner plate sized. Wonderful shots...all of them!

Wonderful pictures. I especially love the little finch in the forest of daisies.

Your photos are just beautiful. Your blog is one of my favorite daily stops.

Gorgeous! The Hibiscus is just wonderful! But I can't really pick a favorite.! For example I never saw a Humming bird yet, neither a yellow finch! So naturally I love those, too!
Great work!
Cheers, Klaus

The hummingbird looked regal in your photo. Loved the daisys too!

TSannie said...

Of course your photos are just lovely.

I had a most awful moment today. Looked out and saw my very first hummingbird hovering over the - empty, thank you very much, because it had fallen - hummingbird feeder, and, of course fly away because there was nuthin' there.

Please come back!

What a gorgeous mix today! That perfect lotus bud has a wonderful umbrella to shade it from the sun in its own green leaves! The hummingbird is outstanding and love the goldfinch and daisies! Great stuff here!

Wow! You have some stunning photos today. Those daisies swaying in the wind are gorgeous. Your hummer looks like she is posing and the goldfinch so cute. Loved them all.
