REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Substituting for one that Blogger lost

When Blogger went on the blink, we thought our "lost" posts would eventually return.  In fact, all of Dayle's Simple Pleasures disappeared.....and my hummingbird post was gone, too.    I see that the most recent Simple Pleasures is back on Dayle's blog, but the link to my post doesn't work.  After all, there's no hummingbird post anymore!  And the Linky is closed.   So I'm re-posting my hummingbird image, just to have it on my blog.   It's a Rufous male feeding at the large feeder outside my little kitchen window.  It's located perfectly for photographing from inside the kitchen.

I'm also linking up with Nancy's "Your Sunday Best" challenge on her A Rural Journal blog.  I love new photo opportunities!

The Rufous male is the most colorful of the hummingbirds in this area.
