Thanks Paul, we have more hummingbird moths this year than I've ever seen! It took patience to get these shots.Yesterday afternoon we saw three buzzing around one bush. Trust me I still have 100's of wasted shots. Thank goodness for digital!

I spotted this gorgeous laughing falcon on my walk this morning. An absolutely stunning bird! It seemed like the whole forest was in hyper drive this morning.
