Strangers at a Pool

As you may have noticed, I rarely take pictures of people. But sometimes, it happens...and this also happens to be Carmi's theme this week.

In other news, I believe this is a tree swallow, watching over Lake Siri:

Thought about you yesterday. While out walking new puppy Bruno, I saw an emerald colored hummingbird hovering near a magnolia tree and thought: "Damn, if only I were Thunder I could get a picture of it."

I don't always get their picture, Jim H. They are very aware and quick little birds. One was at my sister's feeder the other day.

It buzzed in mid-air, getting a good eyeful of the human with camera in hand, and then zoomed off into the treetops.

I got nothing...

It's true, rarely a human if ever! I adore that pool it's quite inviting! I have to put my strangers together too!

We could have done with that pool a couple of weeks ago, now even the swallows are starting their migration to warmer climes.

Like you, thunder, I tend to have relatively few people shots. That pool looks very inviting - or it would do if it was warm here :)

That's a nice little bird on a pole.

The pool looks cool - but why are there no people in it?? Good shot of the swallow - they don't stay still for long!

Like the cardinal flowers - are they wild or in the garden? I grow one in a pot but have to take it inside for the winter.

Bugs are people too! Great shots.
