Self Portrait Challenge- As a ? Week 4


WOMAN AS A
HUMMINGBIRD

We had a wind storm with our heat wave recently and it broke a few of our gladiolas. We have too many to count and every color you can imagine. Our backyard has no need for hummingbird feeders because we have many tasty flowers for them to feed on. We get so many in our yard it's like watching a ballet. They are such happy little birds as they zip from flower to flower humming with their wings.

I feel their joy of living in the moment, zipping through life, enjoying all that life has to offer. Seeking out the beauty and fragrance in their little garden of eden.

Such a beautiful hummingbird you are. And those gladiolas! I love how hummingbirds flock especially to trumpet-like flowers.

Terrific SPC entry, Tammy. I have come to expect no less from you. ::smile::

Love you~

beautiful flowers and of course you are beautiful :) One thing I'm glad to see here in California that we did not have in Montana are humming birds. We are privileged to have a few in our backyard at times; always a joy to watch them flit around

I think this is great! At first I thought maybe you were being Pinnochio but then I saw it was a hummingbird. Very cool picture.

You've been tellin' lies, Pinnochio.
