Waiting and Watching

On the patio

Camera focused and

Barely breathing

Sitting still like a statue

Patience pays off

Hummer comes to visit

Stops for a quick drink

Flits away, but then returns

For an amazing encore!


As I was sitting on my patio today painting I was surprised by a hummingbird zooming in to check out the Birdbath which was literally right in front of me! I sat frozen as I watched it flit back and forth and then zoom away. 

Hoping it would return, I grabbed my camera and sat very still. In a short time it returned for a drink and I was able to record the moment!
