And my granddaughter, in her 30s, had her tonsils out today and no way could I be there to help her. All she had was her mother-in-law. Her husband couldn't get off work, so the mother-in-law was at the surgery center with her while taking care of my two great-grandsons (her grandsons). But all are alive at the end of the day.
I didn't see much to inspire me to take photographs today. I'm pleased with my rue plant (Ruta graveolens).
I took some people down to see the male Lucifer Hummingbird on his territory today and he looked so bronze-colored that it seemed like a good excuse to photograph him (no, I haven't run out of excuses yet). To me it seems that Lucifers are more prone to color variations caused by the lighting conditions than other species are.
