My Rain-Soaked World on High

The hummingbirds, chuparosa, hummers, what-ever we call them sure can make a lot of fuss over their feeders.  And this morning they were all just a fussin’ and a flittin’ and scrapin’ with each other.  They do have their little perches that they each love.

he loves this perch in the early morning New Mexico Light

but he gets to twitching and flittin’ when another hummer zings by

ready for take off

So I decided to climb up on top of our camper that we still have set up as a studio, closet and general catch all.  But the view from the top is

A M A Z I N G…..

as the sun was peeking through the rain storms blowing round

the sunlight on the new Aspen Groves high in the Sangre de Cristos Mountains

and then I heard this feather-flutter high in the Piñon.  I was up high in their territory.  I almost gasped when I saw him just inches away, nestled in the branches and looking out on the new rain soaked world

good morning rain soaked world

and I didn’t want to startle it, but I had to get one more, and when I moved he looked right at me and I clicked before I should have (but I love it anyway)

He sees me, and then he was gone

What a world it is up high in the tree tops.  You can see forever from here.

peace n abundance,

    All of these photos are just marvelous – the sunlight over the valley especially so. And what fun to discover you’re bird-high in the trees! The hummers I’m familiar with, but that gorgeous gold one is new to me. That’s ok – we’ve got seagulls galore!
