Good Morning May 14th, 2017 – Happy Mother’s Day!!!

What a beautiful Mother’s Day!  Too bad Heloise had to work today.  She would have loved meeting Golden Boy!  A immature male humming bird who fluoresces Gold in the sunlight!  Red Beard was pouting in the Mesquite Tree I snagged a few shots but he was so underexposed that raising the shadows became too noisy to share.

When Golden Boy was showing off at the feeder and posing for picture Red had, had enough and put an end to that.  He’s been getting fat.  It will be good for him to have a male to compete with.

I noticed for a sixth year in a row we have no oranges on the tree.  Unfortunately I’m not certain if the birds are snagging them when they are just a few weeks old or if they just didn’t pollinate.  In years past I noticed birds so that is my opinion.

On the bright side the Pomegranate tree has it’s first fruit this year.  Way cool.  We have some tomatoes just turning color so soon will be munching on a fresh picked tomato.  I am getting some seeds started tonight or early tomorrow morning so will update with some seedlings soon.

Good Morning May 12th, 2017

Was a beautiful morning to be outside.  One of the last before we hit triple digits and it becomes too hot to be out much after dawn.  Played with a Nikon D7200 and Nikon Auto 55mm f1.2 lens.  It is an oldie but very good.
