At Rest

Humming Bird CRI miss the hummingbirds.  At our home in western Wyoming, we would have 7 to 30 hummingbirds visiting our feeders on any given day.  They would buzz our heads as we played in Wyokiddo’s  sandbox and jockey for position at the feeder or for the best hiding spot in our trees and hedges.

Outside the hippo venue at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a small garden designed with these tiny birds in mind.  There are feeders and flowers designed to attract the hummingbirds, and on the day we visited a half-dozen or more zipped around.  I didn’t want to wait out or fight the handful of folks trying to photograph the birds.  But I did manage to catch this one taking a break in the shade.  The monochromatic thing I’ve got going on was completely unintentional, but if you can’t be good, be lucky!
