Here are just a few recent photos :)
I caught a flash of coloured feathers as a hummingbird came in for a landing. It had an iridescent Gorget that glistened in the sun, but unfortunately I was unsuccessful in capturing it in a photo. This seems to have the characteristics of a Rufous Hummingbird. We have two types... Rufous and Anna Hummingbird (they sound like a couple of married folk ;)
Usually they look sleek when perched, so I was amazed to glimpse the orange and black feathers with white tips.
Here's another flash ~
The warm sunshine has encouraged many to the beach ~ these children were enjoying themselves...
although I wonder if that little fellow had any idea where he was or where he was going... his hat did more than shade his eyes, I think ;)
A rocky beach ~
Nightfall whispers in silver tones ~
Alone, I walked upon the silvered sands,
my focus on the ridges underfoot.
As dusk began to fall behind the day,
I heard a gentle ocean call my name.
Awakening from reverie, I paused
to listen to the sound that soothes my soul,
a rhythm with a heartbeat of my own.
