There was a young dove that let me enjoy its company today, while I was carving out my place in the paper caves.

It looked me over a few times to be sure that I was not going to do anything harmful.

 Then it walked over to the other side of the railing on the deck, made itself comfy on the corner and went to sleep.

We spent over an hour together, in peaceful meditation.

Silhouette Hummings

Just a touch of colour from the tail of these sweet, little birds and the silhouette becomes a bit more than it was before. I wasn't sure I was going to get anything out of these, it was so close to nightfall, and the flash annoys these little birds, so I took em by hand, sans the tripod (I'm bad about that), and here's what I ended up with. I like the silhouetted image, and the curve of the wings, and branch. How about you?

Dragon Flies

There is a shift that takes place when viewing the world on macro. Where we once were giants, we become part of a much more intricate world than we were before zooming in.
