These are difficult times. What little photography I've been able to do without travel has been focused on trying to take photos that will, I hope, cheer up friends on Facebook. That may seem frivolous with what's going on but it's as constructive as anything else I can think of to do. I hope everyone is well and stays that way.
These are nice! Good ones to take our minds off the madness.
Thank you for sharing some beauty with us.
I love the hummingbird and the birds perched on spiky cactus!

Thank you both.
Cristobal, that's the idea. A small antidote to the news.
Denise, I'm glad you like the birds. I have a number of terrific shots of the hummingbird's rear end as it flew out of the frame.
Edit: I forgot this fellow.
Nice work, Don. I like the selective use of aperature settings. That add-on shot is something else.
Thanks, Tom. I've been trying to make better creative use of shallow (or relatively shallow) depth of field.
I am very much in favor of more images that show the optimism of spring. We're still a few months from hummingbird season in Colorado, so keep them coming.
Wild turkey!! That is a great shot!
Lab-Tested, Cristobal, thank you.
Cristobal, it's a domesticated turkey. I've seen many wild ones when out in the boondocks here and they don't have such colors. They're also significantly smaller.
Very nice work..amazing colors!
I am glad that I am not the only one with a host of digital images of a bird's south end.
Hummingbirds seem to be one of the hardest shots for me to get right....yours is beautiful!
Thanks, El Gato. I was lucky with the hummingbird. An adjacent bed of lantana was attracting butterflies and I was trying to photograph them. I had my longest lens and my 1.4 extender on the camera, and all the camera settings were right for the hummingbird when she made her appearance. Usually when I come upon wildlife I have a 17mm lens on the camera and all the camera settings are wrong.
