Last week I did a post on these hummingbird babies and I am happy to report they are doing just fine as of Thursday morning despite the heatwave. In fact, they are getting bigger and with more feathers.
When I first arrived on Thursday, the momma bird fed the baby on the inside of the nest first and then flew away. I wished I could have gotten a better view, but there were at least 8 photographers to the right of me now.
After the feeding session, the baby who didn't get fed yet kept craning his neck to look for momma and his meal while the full-bellied baby went back to sleep.
Soon after, the momma came back with more food. Now both were fed and the world was right again, at least for this little one. Their flying days are approaching. Soon they will soar into adulthood and this nature story will have its happy ending.
I attended an Instagram-themed photo walk this past Saturday co-hosted by objectivescenes.com and Photojojo.com. Photojojo let participants borrow their macro, fisheye, and telephoto smartphone camera lenses during the walk through San Francisco's Chinatown. It was liberating not having to carry my heavy digital camera around for once.
I opted for the fisheye lens and took a picture of this old Chinatown bar, the Li Po Lounge. I am curious what is beyond those mysterious red doors.
If you are not familiar with Instagram, it is an iPhone photo sharing application. If you use Instagram, feel free to Follow me at "avcr8teur" and I'll do the same for you.
Does it drive or swim? Is it a car or art? It is street-legal but it doesn't go into the water despite having scales and fins.
It looks content being the center of attention.
It took 3 years for the artist to create this piece of traveling art. Apparently, there is a whole community of artists who have converted their cars to works of art. Read here. Is your vehicle ready for a makeover?
