Odd enough to see one of these. Odder still that someone tried to hang up?

Tech stuff: Taken with my iPhone4, some Hipstamatic setting or other.

I am curious...Red

Allen's hummingbird
Orange County, California
28 April 2012

I have a multitude of hummingbirds in the backyard as you might have noticed. The rufous is the most combative little imp I've ever seen. It attacks me. The Allen's is rather more calm and it was unruffled by my presence.

Tech stuff: Taken with my Nikon D40, telephoto lens. The title is a play on two sixties films. I watched I Am Curious...Yellow for a film class a zillion years ago.

The spouse was parked, quietly working while he waited for the daughter, when he heard chanting.  He looked up and demonstrators were moving down the sidewalk to his right while a large group of mounted police were moving down the street to his left. The demonstrators were grouped by special interest and the police just followed along, nodding to the spouse as they passed.

Tech stuff: Taken by the spouse with his Blackberry.
