A Pleasant Surprise

Hello Sweet Readers!
I have been missing the sun lately. It's been rather gloomy here and I'm a Vitamin D kind of gal. Today it rained, and through the rain, there were some patches of beautiful blue sky and even a bit of sun. I had to go out and see. And shoot some pics.

Well, it went away fast, but as I was trying to capture it behind our hummingbird feeder, I got a pleasant surprise! This little guy came humming by and I was able to catch him in my lens. Mind you, I did not have my camera set to capture his wings perfectly and didn't have time to fiddle with my camera, but at least I caught him. Thanks for visiting, little guy!

See, there was a bit a blue sky and sunshine. Oh, how I miss it already.

I also snapped some shots of our oranges that are growing so nicely. They should be ready any moment. We usually allow my eldest to have the first one on his birthday, which is in just a week and a half. It has always been strange to me that they come ripe this time of year. They seem like they would be so perfect for summertime. But they do bring a bit of summer to winter and for that I am grateful :)

Wasn't that sun beautiful? Wished it wouldn't have come out as I was driving home and blinded me, but beggars can't be choosers. :) Great shots on the hummingbird - I especially love the 2nd one and the oranges. Funny because I was trying to get some shots of our lemons today which are also in season, but I think of lemons more for Spring/Summer.
