The secrets of living...

 may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living...

 whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old


These line are from the poem titled '53', by e.e. cummings.

Something is new and different with your photos and/or layout. The pics are !sharper! and the color more saturated. New camera? New blogspot format? Both? It looks great. And you might remember, I'm a soft touch for that poem.

We removed the circular polarizer filter-we think it was affecting the auto focus. For these shots we don't think it is necessary.

Hummingbirds are my favorites of all. Our feeder is very close to our kitchen table and we have gotten to know the locals and their personalities.
