For The Birds

The dog is zonked after swimming for 3 hours in some substantial waves. I didn't go sailing--winds were steady and strong from the north, gusting up to 16mph, and I didn't feel like dealing with it--just threw sticks with Cairo. Here's what we saw today:

One of the resident female hummingbirds. We appear to have two pairs, who kept divebombing me as they fought over the feeder.

This is the best I could do with the male. I had some shots as he turned to look at me, with his ruby throat extremely vivid, but they're out of focus. Alas.

As usual, our loon family hung out fairly far away. They do come in close to our shore, but usually not when the dog is out. Anyway, all three of them here, though one is hard to see, mere minutes after landing.

No sign of our resident moose family. Bummer--Stef and I had a streak where we saw them every time we'd visit. Maybe they're on vacation.


PS--Sorry for not doing thumbnails. I'm just feeling lazy.

[Update, 8:47PM: BTW, the feeder the female hummingbird went to was less than 6 feet away from me. The one the male was eating from was twice that far.]
