Daily Reminder # 348

Just gratitude this evening, I think. Once again it was a beautiful day out but the back yard was surprisingly quiet. Did have a lovely visit from the female cardinal pictured above and a few other birds, but considering that my bird feeder is full of seed again, it was quieter than expected.  Anyway, some pictures and my gratitude. Seems that I'm leaving wordzzles until tomorrow and living with my guilt.

look close slightly below center and slightly to the right
and you'll see a wonderful bumble bee. They are back!

These guys are so amazing and way too fast for me....

Love the lady cardinal!

I also think you are taking some pretty amazing hummingbird photos. Still, if you aren't satisfied, you might try looking at the settings on your camera. If you have an icon that looks like a guy running, try putting the camera in that mode when shooting hummingbirds. It should shorten your shutter speed.
