An Inspiring End to the Week

Friday Finds:  Playful hummingbirds and napping together.

I was catching glimpses of this hummingbird for several days.  Before I could get to the window to get a better look it would be gone.  On this day there were two, perhaps a pair, frolicking in the garden, seemingly playing a game of tag.  My wonderful husband went out on our porch and snapped several photos hoping to at least get one of them in a photo.  I have never seen two humming birds together and it was an exhilarating experience watching them playing together.  I still smile when I think about them.

My teenage son has a habit of falling asleep on the couch after working a long shift.  On this day, his cat Kiri decided to nap with him.  My moving around to click this shot woke her up and she let me know that I had interrupted some important napping.

  1. Your son looks like he is enjoying his nap. Interesting read on the blogging inspiration.

  2. Great son and cat photo. Wonderful.

  3. I've found that the hummers in my yard are very territorial! They will chase each other off from the feeders. But watching them is soooo addictive. And both your son and the kitty look very content.
