Yesterday’s many activities included a thorough watering of the garden since rain has been elusive this week. The chore gave me an excuse to survey the yard, which I hadn’t done in several days. Afterward, I brought out my camera to stalk the Hummingbirds. Unfortunately, the birds weren’t cooperating, but the flowers stood relatively still. During the editing phase, though, I discovered I’d captured more than just the pretty flowers in this image. There’s a hidden resident in this photograph that I wish I’d discovered during the shoot. At first I was disappointed in myself for not seeing it through the viewfinder, but then I realized that it’s probably just camera shy—I guess I know the feeling.
