Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

December Photo Project 2012 -- Day Eight

Early last Spring I bought a new motion-activated camera to set up outside near the bird feeder to get pictures of the birds eating. I got some pretty good pictures, and posted some on the blog here.

Recently I decided to set up a new hummingbird feeder, one with a big red reservoir that I figured would attract hummers with its color. And I set up the same camera near it. After some tweaking, I managed to get a few good photos.

This one, I think, is one of the best -- or at least the most striking -- so I decided to make it my picture of the day.
I'll post more later.


  1. Yes, very striking! I love the idea of a bird or game camera. I hope it continues to captures the hummers upclose for you. Paula

  2. I think those cameras are so cool!! What a great capture of a hummer. Good for you.


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
