Just a quick blog note for summer solstice. I took the summer solstice sunrise photo just as the sun came up this morning. It's hard for me to believe how far north the sunrise is in summer compared to winter. I hope to post a composite photo of summer, fall, winter, and spring sunrises in the future, so here is number one.
On this first day of summer, I managed to photograph, through my bird spotting scope, a photo of a hummingbird sitting on her nest. I found the next yesterday more by accident than by design as I heard the bird flying in the same place at the same time of day for the second day in a row and then spent time looking at the tree in my binoculars. Birds on the nest are a real treat at any time but this is only the third time in my life that I have seen a hummingbird nest and the first time I have actually seen the hummingbird on the nest.
