Daily Reminder # 350

Iron gray skies and gloom and rain all day, but at least it has gone Spring enough that I can keep the windows open. I really love having them open. Too lazy to do anything but gratitude and photos. The yard was quiet and the light and the filthy glass on the back door make getting good pictures extra difficult. The far ones tend to look like water colors, which I kind of like. Hummingbirds were frequent visitors. At one point one of them actually seemed to offer me a beautiful profile pose. Even lingered. Did I get the shot? Nope. By the time I found him/her with the camera, he she was gone. Was pretty to see, though. 

Not perfect, I know, but....

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an attempt to inspire generosity from the Creative forces of the Universe, in large and small ways, though my biggest wish is the truckload of money.)

I have a kind of obsessive passion for as much zoom as possible, but
I'm slowly letting go of it, because sometimes you get better pictures
with a little distance.... I just think hummingbirds are awesome.
