What I notice most in these waning days of summer is not the flowers, though they are still blooming sweetly, nor the colors, though they are especially intense and vivid. What I notice most is the quality of the light. The way the sun slants through the sky to pour, nurturing and warm, across the earth takes my breath away. Having said that, I will let these few images of my late afternoon walk speak for themselves. The last is a short film of a hummingbird at the butterfly bush. Sadly the camera I borrowed today does not have a sound feature for video, so you will have to just imagine the hum of the ruby-throated hummingbird's wings.
