Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, October, 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

Lil hummer



So, yesterday I stayed home.  Well, not ALL day, of course!  I drove to the city park, to my favorite nursery center, and then home.  While at the nursery, I was admiring this beautiful purple shrub and spotted this little hummingbird busily making the rounds on it.  He just wouldn't hold still, so I'm surprised I even got one decent photo of him!  I tried to find out the name of the shrub, but the guy mumbled it and I never did figure it out...Ranch something...I've tried to find it online and can't.  And, of course, they didn't have any in stock.  I guess I'll just have to return next weekend!   :-)

Those turned out nice. It's a good subject matter to have partially in focus and partially blurred to show movement and distance.
