Week 24 of 52, 2017: Female Hummingbird

 I sat out on the patio three nights straight last week, for 30 to 45 minutes each nigth.  Waiting for the perfect Hummingbird Male in a flower.  I took several females flying around but not even one flower photo.  I kept thinking I would get a better one before the end of the week.  Then I got under the weather, and forgot to post.  I came close to just letting the 52 week project die, but I made a public commitment.  Please forgive this one being published late even though it was shot on 6/14/17 @ 7:00 PM.

Week 22 of 2017 52 Week Project

Week 22 of 52, 2017: Baby Hummingbird still in nest and ready to fledge.

if you look close you can actually see the second baby in the nest.  The way the creek runs and the position of the leaves, I was only able to get a photograph of the nearest bird.

Week 21 of 2017 52 Week Project

Week 21 of 52, 2017: The Moving Vietnam Memorial Wall stopped in our little town of Sachse Texas for Memorial Day weekend.

Very special to have gotten to see this less than 1 mile from my house.  Very sobering, over 58 thousand names on it.
