Birds of paradise and a bee

DSC_0110.NEF

I see two birds of paradise in this shot. One drinking the nectar of another. The drink will conclude in a mere second to two, with the hummingbird remembering exactly where he drank previously.

Do you see that bee (or other flying bug) hovering just behind the hummingbird’s upper tail? It won’t be in that position too long. It will likely be blown away by the fan of the hummingbird’s ultra-fast flapping wings. This whole scene is so temporary that it could not be captured  by a person’s eye alone.

I saved his life at the waterfall in Ricketts Glen SP

Ricketts Glen State Park in PA-001

We walked up stairs and stairs along the many waterfalls at Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania. My husband (then boyfriend) took photographs all along the way. He got a little too adventurous, though, at one spot, and down he fell. His body started sliding down the slimy rocks along the edge of one, but it only took me a millisecond to react. I grabbed his arm with all my might, and hoisted him back to safety. The only injury that he experienced was a dent on the hood of his camera lens.

Elemental dangers

 

Just married Bohemian bum’s appetizer

Groom picking garbage1

Heading joyfully to the wedding reception, the Bohemian bum groom sought out an appetizer from the garbage can for old time’s sake. The bride, waited patiently, dreaming more about beef roulade and marzipan covered cake. To others, his action may seem unusual, but in the groom’s youth, he thought it was real cool.
