Today after logging into my email account, I have noticed a message from Deviantart regarding a password retrieval. Needless to say I haven't forgotten my password and I have definitely not atempted to retrieve it. Wonderful.

As I've mentioned in my latest picture, I'll be off to vacation land very soon and might or might not be able to post pictures. If that's the case, posting will resume next Saturday.

Daily deviation

1 min read
I just got back from work, started my computer, opened up my browser and went to Deviantart just to check. Then I noticed, that one of my photos, just became Daily Deviation, which is incredible. After many years on the site, I never thought I'd receive one and now I've just gotten a second one. I'd like to thank @morbidman187 for the feature and also everyone else, who took a peek at it.

Thank you so much for the badges and support, I really appreciate it :D :happybounce:

You're welcome. Your photos are delightful, so the badges are well deserved.

Much appreciated "Bug Man"! 😉

You're welcome, looks like you finally got your hummingbird picture.

No, not really. It turned into a decent pic with the processing, but it wasn't what I was after.

I wanted to keep after them for a few more opportunities since the Labor Day pic was taken but several days or varying rain kept me from trying.

Now the temps have started to fall off significantly from the heat wave we just had so I'm not sure if it will have caused them to start migrating yet or not.

This week set me back a bit more yet, everyone in the house has been trying to recover from a cold or flu virus from hell that seems to want to hang around for far too long. I mowed the lawn an afternoon earlier this week and finished off with the hand-mowing, energy levels were nowhere back to normal and I was about wiped by the time I was done.

Todays the best I've felt since Sunday and I've been itching to get some time behind the camera again, thinking I'll try my luck tomorrow and hope I can catch up with one again.

Ah, that's too bad, but it's a great shot regardless.

Setbacks like this are frustrating, I've had something similar happen few months back. It would either rain, or I would feel sick when it wasn't raining.

Hopefully you'll feel good enough to go shooting again. And hopefully the hummingbirds will still be there.

Thank you so much for the badges, I really appreciate it :D :happybounce:
