Hummingbird Enjoying A Gnat Snack!
 
I choose this picture to enter into the contest for special effects. I first published it as a GIF on Autumn equinox. It was a fall day a number of years ago when I saw this. I kept seeing the hummingbird stabbing the air and couldn't figure out what this bird was doing. All of a sudden the sunlight hit the knats and they looked like a cloud! I then realized that the hummingbird was having a gnat snack!

Sedona Harvest Moon Rising
This pic is the main page background on sperryr.com
Harvest Moon 2009
Since 2009, the trees have grown and a shot like this can't be taken from my backyard anymore. 
The picture below puts this 400mm picture in context. In the pic below the moon is not full so the sun is still above the horizon. The red rocks become darker when the light is coming through in just the red wave length. 
The shot below was also taken in August not October from Devil's Kitchen on Soldier's Pass Trail . A popular tourist attraction about a 1/4 mile behind my home.

This is not an unusual sight to see. Every couple of months we can see them.  There are paw marks on a wall in the courtyard in the front of the house where we have a fountain. I … (15 comments)
