I love taking pictures in the garden. Bugs, birds, flowers, you name it. If you’re interested in checking some out, click here for my Webshots flower album and click here for my Webshots butterfly album . My Webshots member name is flamingonut, in case my links don’t work.

I’ve had hummers for a few years now (I think). Year one (2004) I had 2 (I think), but 2005 was a thrilling year for me. I had 5 regulars that I know of, 3 females, that I saw at the same time, and 2 males. I was finally "buzzed". I always wondered how thrilling that must be, and it sure was. Once they left, I had three migrators, each of which had it’s own personality and plant preferences. 2006 I only noticed 3 regulars (boo hoo).

2006 I also dove into the world of rearing Monarch’s. I successfully reared 9, raising them in large plastic containers. I even took one on vacation with me, down the shore, along with milkweed cuttings. What a thrill!!!
