The hummingbirds are back! I have been waiting for two months to be able to include this poem, one of my favorite Emily Dickinson's. But hummingbirds have been scarce around here the last month and a half, and I even had another post ready to go today instead. Yesterday, though, the stars must have been in alignment; as I sat out on the porch, camera in hand for once, not one, but two swooped down several times before finally deciding to take a drink. They are not easy to photograph because of their constant motion, and this picture doesn't begin to compare to some of the great shots others have shown on their blogs. But I am happy . . . my summer is complete.
