Hummingbird Nest

We were trimming a hedge near by.  This brave little hummingbird stood vigil on his or her nest.  Such a sweet part of nature…

Cooper’s Hawk at Sunset

These guys like to taunt me.  The call out and say ‘hey lady, give it your best shot!”.  Today, just before sunset this guy was sitting on top of a tree calling for a mate.  (I assume that’s what it was because he/she was really squawking.)  The light just before sunset gives a nice golden hue.  I may not have the super duper zoom lens, but this shot makes me happy.
