Pretty slow around here, foodwise. Mrs J did make one of her famous berry pies. This one has blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries in an all butter crust. She bought a few fancy pattern crust cutting devices that worked well, and an edge roller that didn’t.A shower this morning turbocharged the hummers at the nectar feeder, providing Homer with a good show.The hummingbirds really get hungry when rain threatens. Some evolutionary advantage from it, I suspect, along the lines of “eat now because later it may be too damn windy”.Here is a kitteh with a different survival strategy. It’s working for him so far. He doesn’t have to look hard for breakfast when he wakes.Just for fun, here’s a repost of a picture I took a few years ago of a Goldfinch getting a drink.And a few more for good measure.
Staked out the sunflowers with a camera in hand, waiting for some action. I was expecting the goldfinches and got some nice shots. The hummer caught me napping but I was able to salvage a picture despite some serious thumb fingered fumbling.
