Hummer Glow

Will bend rule of thirds to make a point

The madness continues! This one from yesterday evening is cool because of the orange light reflecting off the feeder. So many hummingbirds today, also bees. Getting dangerous around here.

It’ll be sad when these guys go away again. Almost as sad as when our Rocky Mountain “summer” leaves, the price we paid to leave unending, molten-wax-on-skin humidity back East. And it has been raining a lot here… Does that mean this will be the winter she leaves me crying in the driveway because I wouldn’t buy a 4WD? No! But all in all, there’d better be a plan.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

      If you’re on a Mac laptop or iPad with a Retina display, you’ll be looking at a high-resolution image you can zoom big to see lots more detail in those feathers.
