Early Evening Visit

Just before starting dinner last evening, I sat on the patio with a cup of coffee and a book. Heard the whirr of wings, and a familiar chirp sound, and realized I had a visitor. I really enjoy the hummingbird visits.

As I picked up the camera this morning, there was a row of mourning doves in the sunlight, along the top of the wall.  I was feeling clever and thought I would call it "mourning line-up."  The moment I picked up the camera, they were gone in a whirr of wings.  I'm sorry I interrupted their morning sunbathing.

Almost as good as a line of birds is this peek-a-boo bougainvillea from the neighbor's yard.  It just started blooming in a crazy red flush about a week ago.
