It takes all kinds…

I wanted to take more pictures of the hummingbirds, so I was sitting quietly in a chair on the back deck. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement. I thought maybe a hummer was flying next to me, checking out my camera. But when I carefully turned to look, this strange creature had landed on the arm of the chair next to me. So, I took advantage of the situation and snapped his picture. Don’t know quite what he is, but as far as bugs go, he’s quite the model. He might not be as lovely as a hummingbird, but I’m still glad he dropped in for a portrait!

  2. Pam, I hadn’t looked through ALL your recent pictures in a little while. What a feast for the eyes and a treasure for the heart.

    I tell ya, at some point in my life, I’m going to have to learn Photo Shop. I have Elements 6 but have gotten overwhelmed every time I’ve looked at it. You just do such incredible things with it. And with your camera.

    And I loved your Pam Doughty Photography trademark; cool!

    Love

  10. Woohoo! I actually know what this is. It’s a robberfly. A lady on Ning took a picture of one and posted it to see if anyone knew what it was. Being the obsessive person I am, I searched the internet until I figured it out. πŸ™‚
