This was the last photo from last night, before coming into the house. The Fallish color was at it's brightest & I knew it would start fading from here. I love cloudy sunsets, I think they add more of a mood to the image. The photo below is what the sky looked like from my front porch, looking to the South. That's when I decided it was time to prepare for the sunset I was about to witness, hoping the clouds would look similar in the hour I was going to have to wait for it.
I missed getting the humming bird photo I wanted last night but the humming bird only came by when I didn't have my camera in my hand, which was why he came by of course (that's why the 2nd cloudy photo was taken, I ran inside & got my camera, hoping he would come back).
He did but only for a second, he found a bee on HIS flower (a newly bloomed Gayfeather) & decided to leave for the night. I'll have to try another time, he's our local dude so I know he'll be back for more. This was the split second shot (the only shot I was even able to get) of him finding the bee on HIS flower. As you can see, I was focused on the flower to prepare for his arrival, I had NO time to focus on him. I think he looks ticked off big time & the bee is high tailing it outta there. Ha
