    Gladiolus are blooming like crazy, and this hummingbird is finally feeling comfortable in our garden. Had such a lovely visit today.

    Can we join this hummingbird in bowing our heads for a moment to appreciate the beauty around us?

    Thanks so much for the kind words. The light, the colors, the pose, it was all a gift from Mother Nature.

    Thanks very much - they're pretty sharp, but can never be sharp enough :)

    Thank you!

    Thanks Jeff
