First days of spring


First days of spring the sky is bright blue, the sun huge and warm. Everything is turning green...Time is forgotten, the hours fly.  People passing by point at me and laugh: “Why are you acting like such a fool?” I nod my head and don’t answer. I could say something, but why? Do you want to know what’s in my heart? From the beginning of time: just this! just this! ~Ryokan Taigu

He's in mid-turn. Wonderful shot!
People could say that about me most anytime, but especially during spring!

What an amazing photo this is! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a hummer quite like this.

It's always very astonishing to see how bird could stand on such a fragile twig. Sometimes I wonder if the bird is actually standing on it hehe... Nonetheless, nice shot!

Annie said...

Wow! That is a great shot. I love seeing the eye peeking out from all its flurry of feathers.

Amin said...

Very unique bird!
