Our Summer Guests

What a wonder it was to have a hummingbird family in our tree in the backyard. I set up my camera and took lots of pictures, and even a video.
It was great to watch their progress every day. The white in the nest is my cat's fur. He pulled his mats out in the backyard, and Mama Hummingbird liked them just fine.
It was a real challenge to shoot these pictures. The camera had to face west into the sun and then focus tightly on a moving tree branch.  I learned a lot!

2014 The Dyer's Notebook Dye-Along

Here is the link to my inspiration board for The Dyer's Notebook DAL group on Ravelry.

I'm going to be dyeing tomorrow or by the end of the week. I teach on Saturday so that's my deadline to be done by then.
My camera is getting really cranky lately so I don't know if I'll use that or my phone for pics. Yarn pictures there will be however.
