This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24 - BGlad!

As I was sitting at the computer this morning I heard a thud at the back door.

As I peered out the window to see what may have bumped into the house to make the noise I saw two of these

So, of course, I grabbed my camera to snap a couple photos.

A light mist was falling so I tried to get some decent shots through the windows. As I glanced out the window, down by my little herb garden I saw this

So who cares about a little rain, I just had to go on outside to see what else was going on.

The turtle was pretty shy - but I was able to get a shot of him peeking out of his slightly cracked shell.

As I walked around to get a better view I surprised the bird that built a nest on the downspout of the house and she perched on the feeder and gave me a dirty look.

(I think she is a phoebe). She gets awfully upset when we startle her out of the nest, so there just may be a few eggs in there!

So I moved back around to the porch and heard a chatter and a buzz - the hummingbirds were fighting over who should get the next sip of nectar. I snapped this photo of Mr. Hummer,

then hummer #2 zipped on in for a sip. I was surprised that I was actually able to capture them both in the same shot!

What a busy morning!! I'm still not sure what made the noise that initially made me look outside, but I'm glad I didn't miss out on all this wild life! (Is it any wonder I have a hard time getting things done around here LOL!)
