Deer Seeking Picnic, Hummingbird Drinking Nectar.

These deer are in Shenandoah National Park. Even though I've seen deer countless times, I still feel a thrill at spotting them. Such pretty animals! 


Meanwhile at home, I'm trying out a purple hummingbird feeder and so far it is very successful.

These tiny birds move very quickly. They don't seem interested in using the perches on the feeder but they do like the sugary nectar.

  3. Your photos are really nice. A purple hummingbird feeder is a new idea to me. I thought red was the color that attracted them. I’ve had several photos of hummingbirds come out confused because the brightly-lit red surface was reflected in their plumage. (This is especially annoying in places where there are several different species, not just ruby-throated).

  5. Hurricane Hanna. ...I think it's over. Power went out yesterday about 1 pm...didn't get any A.C. until it was restored about 9 this morning. High winds, sporadic heavy rain, and last night tornadoes all over the area. No damage for us except lots of small branches.

    Thanks for stopping by and linking up this weekend. Bud & I have a bit of clean-up to do, so my visit is short.
