Random things that make me happy

Mama hummingbird in her nest. This was late in the evening and I was trying not to use my flash. Hmmm......kind of arty I guess. To put her into scale- the nest cannot be bigger than 2.5 inches.
This is with the zoom lens and a flash- She was a bit annoyed but never moved- I loved the way she tucks herself into the nest, almost like a folding doll- there are two little white eggs on their way to a new life.

This is at my sister-in-law's house. I liked everything about this scene. She has a different variety of cocoa growing in her garden. Her pods are smaller and smoother than my own and her tree is more rambling.

A late evening glimpse of the garden with the copper to the side. This copper does not have water in it- I believe it is called the "sugar loaf" variety because of the high sides.
