3 Little Birds

* It's amazing how 3 little things have touched my life in such a huge way. I have always been a fan of Hummingbirds, but never as much as today. About 5 weeks ago I found a hummingbird nest in my backyard. I have never been so excited! I knew that this was my once in a lifetime chance to witness Mother Nature at her best! I am so happy to be able to share this with all of you... please enjoy!!!

Sitting tight in her Nest!

Here is The Mama Bird getting a quick drink!

Two lil' eggs, just a tad bigger than a tic tac.

15 DAYS LATER, WE HAVE BABIES!!! Aren't they cute? (Day one)

My "Mamas" She is so sweet and purty!!! This is where she likes to sit when not on her nest.

Lil' Snuggle Buddies (Day Five)

They wanted me to feed them (Day Nine)

Getting Feathers w/ Color ( Day Thirteen)

Getting too big for the nest :( (Day Seventeen)

Almost ready to leave the nest (Day Twenty)

We had a minor tragedy yesterday, The gardeners came and I showed them the nest, and told them to not cut the bushes. When I went to show them, I noticed one baby hummingbird half out of the nest. She had fallen out, and was like the letter "V" between a branch and her nest. The only things holding her up was the tip of her beak, and tail feathers! So I decided to push her up gently with my finger. When I got her back in the nest, it startled the other one- who then flew away. When she flew away, it startled the other one, and she flew away. SOoooo..... My Babies have left the nest! I am so happy that I got to experience this. I will never look at another hummingbird the same!!!

Playing Catch Up

I am accepting the challenge rather well....

Or so I'd like to think so. :) I went to my Moms house for an early Thanksgiving, and here is some of the beauty around her home in Solvang Ca.

True Beauty

Please use this blog as your window into my soul. These are the beautiful things I capture looking through the lens of my camera. I have decided that I need to start challenging myself more with my photography. I used to be VERY into my fine art photos, and now it seems that all I shoot are family portraits, maternity, and kids. Every once in a while I am able to sneak in a few fine art shots- but now I will do more! Eventually I will be adding all these photos to my Etsy store. Please check back frequently.
