These photographs of Hummingbirds are taken by The
Artist. The bloom belongs to a Buddleia, which is considered a
foreign and invasive species by the purists here in Kentucky. And
because she is currently stalking Chipmunk, all photographs of Chipmunk,
that might occasionally occur, are also taken by The Artist.
Indeed any photograph that has movement, interest, good composition and
which displays obvious signs of having waited around for the perfect
moment, are all taken by The Artist.
And there is outside a most
perfect Sunflower. A very fine face and excellent petals. The
Sunflower with the big head is native to the Americas. Some reckon it
was first farmed somewhere in Mexico, around two thousand five hundred years
ago. I should go outside and try to capture it with digital recording
device, before Goldfinch pillage it. It's an odd thing, but
Goldfinch always seem to find the Sunflower first. They get all
excited, gather their clan, and before you know those goofy Cardinals have
joined them for the feast.
