Pretty Birds

Hey everybody! We are back! Actually, we have been back since Sunday night but Mom was too tired to help us post. And then she had to work Monday night and run reports. And then she has been tired every night but we said we HAD to post something so everyone would know we are back and okay.

Our cardinal was back again. Here is a picture where you can see his face. Mom says this guy was hard to get because he wouldn't look at her so she could get more than his back. We have tons of pictures of his back if you want to see how red it is.




But Mr. Cardinal isn't the picture that Mom is proudest to show you. She sat FOREVER to get a picture of one of the hummingbirds. These guys move so fast that you have to have the camera ready and you start shooting as soon as he is in the area. You know all those pictures we have of Mr. Cardinal's red back? Well we have lots and lots of pictures of the hummingbird feeder. No hummingbird, just the feeder. So you can see why Mom was glad to get this one.



We have some other pictures to show you from our trip but right now Mom is yawning and we think bed time is here.

Like we said, she has been tired but it was important to let all of our friends know we haven't left them. We are here just not always on line.

I was wondering when you all were going to post something. I miss your guys when you don't post for awhile. Your momis sure good with a camera! Those are great pictures. Linda said she had nector feeders exactly like your mom's when she lived in IL. She had four nector feeders out and the hummingbirds buzzed around her yard daily. She said they would fight over the feeders. Makes me laugh to think of something that tiny fighting- hee hee!

Hi Isabella, we missed you too. Mom needs to get a laptop so we can post from the country! Mom thanks you for the compliment about the pictures. (The truth is she takes about 20 bad pictures for every good one!) Those hummingbirds are interesting. They fly all around chasing each other but disappear as soon as Mom brings out the camera! How do they know??

Wow those are great pictures! My whole family said they have never seen a cardinal. They are beautiful. They look like they would live in Latin America because they are so full of color.

Did you guys see any cowdogs when you went to the country?
