Riding out the storm.


It was a very windy-rainy night and morning as a potent Pacific storm spun past.  In its aftermath the leaves are mostly gone, but look who abides.  This is Scritchy, the backyard Anna's Hummingbird.  Howling wind, pelting rain, disintegrating trees--no matter. Scritchy shrugs off weather. 

(Very small shrugs.)

That is one tough little bird! I love how his throat sparkles among the red leaves.

Eskarina,He was more cooperative than usual (cold perhaps?). It's hard to get the gorget colour on these dark days.

Lea, Thanks, and a great day to you too.
