For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: spring.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: bold.
Yesterday felt so spring like. I wandered around the neighborhood taking pictures. These are in a pot on my front stoop. I curled up in the sun in my lower yard and took a nap for an hour in the sun as well.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt rus-in-urbe.
I am not in a city. I am in a town. But still, when the flock shows up at my feeder, I feel such joy watching them.
No snow now, but the Anna’s hummingbirds were guarding the feeder most of the time when it was cold, especially when I would thaw it. One especially cold hungry day, it dive bombed me when I went to wrap a warm towel around the feeder to warm it up. Fierce little birds!
But it also did the behavior pictured. I think it’s beak cleaning, but it sure looks like sharpening. Just like sharpening a knife.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: diurnal.
I think this is a female Anna’s hummingbird.
Every so often I get the flock at my feeder. I did this morning. I think these are bushtits.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: iridescence.
For Mundane Monday #200, my prompt is crop.
My subject, this hummingbird, has a crop. But I also cropped the photograph. And are we planning crops for the spring? There are other sorts of crops.
Tell us and show us a photograph that uses crop. I will list them next week.
Last week’s prompt was portal.
A new contributor bushboy adds a beautiful portal.
The Photo Junkie also joins with a portal in stone.
KLAllendorfer has photographs that are an Edinburgh portal.
I wondered last week if I should end this version of Mundane Monday with number 200. But I had not given warning, nor asked if someone wants to take over and anyhow, I thought, it gives me joy on Monday. Maybe it does for others too and isn’t one enough? So many thanks to the people reading and the old and new entries.
