Finally a Hummingbird Picture (But Not a Great One)!

Couldn't resist this beautiful Monarch on our zinnias.  There were lots of them today.  It was almost fall like which is nice after all our very hot weather this summer.  As a result, I spent the afternoon outside reading Sense and Sensibility -- the best part out e-readers is how many wonderful free books there are out there just waiting to be read!

Finally I managed to get a picture of one of the frequent visitors to the butterfly bush in my neighbor's yard -- one of the hummingbirds.  This was taken from about 50 feet away but at least it is identifiable!!  I have tried for some time to manage to get the camera out in time to get at least one picture.

Okay, just one more Goldfinch!

I have been very busy trying to get many, many quilts basted so that I can machine quilt them while down in North Carolina and even one to hand quilt!  Three of these have been king sized so it has not been a one day process.  One more major one to go and a couple of small quilts and it will be done.   Now to have all my bindings set up as well so I don't have to go and purchase fabric that I already have down here.  Now to find room in my car for the transfer!

Those "hummers" are hard to catch. We have had them in our yard all summer long and I can't seem to get a decent pic. I know I need a better camera.
