Another set of memory shots.
In case you're new to the blog,
memory shots are those that, while not great shots,
are special to me in some way.
Today I went with friends out to West Cliff.
Everyone swore there were whales.
We did see a few spouts,
but I certainly wasn't fast enough to get off a shot,
so if there were whales,
you can't prove it by me.
Do you think someone
is out there in a submersible,
spouting water every once in a while
to fake us all out?
That thought occurred to me
There did seem to be an inordinate number of cormorants.
There must have been at least a dozen gulps of cormorants.
Did you know that's what you call a gathering of cormorants?
While not a great shot,
it's a reminder to me of the look of dozens of birds,
sweeping and swooping close to the waves.
I though they were quite beautiful
If you can't see them
(they are very small in this shot),
then click to enlarge.
This shot is my new friend,
the baby hummingbird.
We have six feeders on the rig,
but this little guy only comes to my window feeder.
He's quite small, and will sit for minutes at a time.
Not a great shot
(remember I'm shooting
through the heavily tinted windows of the Lazy Daze),
Still I wanted to capture a picture of him
before he grows up.
And that's it for today.
