Nature and Things

After living in the city for a number of years, I'm amazed at the wildlife in this area. This little humming bird totally amazed me. He was so tame. He just sat in this apple tree on my parents deck for a good 15 minutes while I took pictures and got gradually closer and closer.

Just the other day, I saw a blackbear crossing the highway a few miles outside the city to make its way to the lake for a drink. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera.

Wow, what an amazing photo!

Thanks. I really couldn't believe he just sat there for the photos. Usually the hummingbirds buzz around far too quickly to get any sort of picture.
