  1. Fantastic contrast. Great capture on this photo. I just read another Haiku post using the word crimson, so, your use jumped out and grabbed at me, made it more powerful. Funny how that happens, after all, there are no coincidences. Hope all is good with you.

    Much Peace

  2. I love those bright flowers that attract the birds. Nicely penned.

  4. Beautiful shadow capture for the day! I love the color and the background and you always have the perfect words to match! Enjoy your weekend!


  5. This bright spot of color is beautiful. Hummingbird Heaven – I like that visual. 🙂

  6. The hummingbirds, like the human, need to head to the hills to escape the crowds. So being near the city is okay, the views of the expanse below is neat, there but not quite there!
