Arizona hummingbirds

Hummingbirds were plentiful in Yuma. Almost every time I pulled out the camera, they would hide. It took three days to get semi-decent photographs of these elusive creatures. Once in a while they would take a break on the Ficus tree branch but they were so small that you had to look very hard to see them. Beware: if you wear a bright pink top, hummingbirds may mistake you for a flower.

i puled over briefly in Monterey last year...to rummage for something under the car seat
and then remained
spellbound in the carpark

as a hover of hummingbirds
blurred about a bush there

magic
in the most unexpected place
