I can't remember if I posted this before.. oh well. It's a crummy scan of a (not so great) black and white print that I took with my trusty old Fuji STX-2. I still love it. lol.



It was taken at a little ranch just outside of Cuauhtémoc, Mexico. About 10 minutes after I took it I got a phone call letting me know my Mom had passed away. It set in motion a mad dash down through Creel, the Sierra Tarahumara mountains, and finally back home just in time for her funeral.

I think about her a lot, but the emotion is really strong when I look at this pic. Love you Mom.


Amigo... Very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I pray God fill you with his grace everyday. I do understand.... Also the pic is excellent! Bless ya buddy.

Well shots from today(75 no wind) from a very close location, I also switched up the feeders and it seems location may be more important than a particular feeder. This pic is showing the new location but before I switched the feeders again. When I did swap them I was a little over 3 feet from the Cactus feeder and a little over 2 feet from the old reliable blue feeder. See pic below this one.

Now you have an idea how close, 3ft for green, 2 feet for blue(a tad over for both so best approx.)

Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead. Looks like a disaster but a full stop and perch, no problem.

Well that's it. Time for me to eat, I'm starving. Looks like bacon, eggs, toast and hash browns tonight and grape juice. Have a nice evening.

MY former daughter in law, gave me this. Our son took it at the Ft. Worth stock show. Sorry about all the 'glare' in the glass... That's 'on me,' no way around it in 'this pic of the picture...' ;)
Now to get it on the wall!

Well it's still gorgeous weather, mid 70s and virtually no wind. I'm doing a whole of experimenting with different locations(much closer) and my two brand new back-up feeders both are top-feeders. Seeing the purple feeder for the very first time. A pic of my shoot location taken just before the shots.

Sure didn't take long at all to check the purple feeder out. Course it is also the furthest away but that was my choice to hopefully get them to check it out... no problem...

One bummer today tho, I missed probably the best shot of the summer. I looked out the kitchen window earlier and a hummer was doing a major splish splash in the fountain and I saw a whole lot of sparkly color. I went for my camera supposedly by the backdoor but no. I then went to my iMac desk and there it was, just one problem, the camera was open and the cartridge was still inside my iMac from last night(See I told you I was hungry). So I ejected the cartridge and put it in the camera. It was too late. Still I learned that a new hummer(maybe Max) really, really enjoyed himself playing and bathing for a record amount of time, maybe over 30-40 seconds. Oh well, ya can't win 'em all. Have a nice afternoon.

Watching you evolve in the photography of these hummers, is a real blessing. Man these pics too, are very good, and clear and detailed, especially that last pic... Actually ALL of them are just simply great Hombre... ;)

I look forward to DM and Max 'next photo shoot..' Stories are great as well with the pics. I keep saying here, "I'm going to break out the photography equipment, but stuff (life) keeps taking me down other trails, and taking my time. Plus, I use older equipment, and the film I want, I cannot hardly find. May have to just stick with Fuji film 35mm, if I can even find that.

You keep up the good work and be thankful your 'models' don't charge for the photo sessions! haha.

Very cool amigo! ;)

Well here is my location for today, look to the left of the green band midway on the tree and you can see my brown and green barstool(Finally got a no-slip cushion for it the other day) just to the left and down a bit.

This shot is just a big experiment using all the feeders at once, but I will only be using two on a regular basis, this helps to find out which two. I like the Cactus one the best, then the ole red and blue one.

These were taken yesterday.

Not a hummer but almost as fast, it's my first good shot of bird using the birdbath. I am very close and he does see me but lets me snap off two shots, and why not he's very fast.

Well that's it for HummerLand today and guess what, no f***ing ants, not a single one. Have a nice evening, later.

PS: I won't be editing to enlarge anymore as the click on the picture in the post does a better job. I had used before just a little but after trying the click on the picture on the hummer pics I'm sold.

That's the best lighting angle (when the sun is shining) by far.
VERY nice detail on those shots!
