HUMMINGBIRD LIFE
Ray wasn’t satisfied with watching the hummingbirds in the garden below us – especially not after watching them up close at the feeders at Coconut Tree Divers – so he hung a feeder and a rope for them to light on from the porch posts.

He’s been experimenting with the selfie stick and his iPhone to get some good pics, but it’s an ongoing work in progress – they’re tough to catch.

It’s amazing how quickly they dart in and out. The other day, one came up from the garden so quickly that Ray said it reminded him of the scene in the movie Blue Thunder where one of the black choppers just rises silently out of nowhere – boom. Sip, sip, there and gone again.

REEF LIFE
He’s also been trying to figure out the new underwater camera. The first time we snorkeled with it, the setting was accidentally on video instead of photo. This time he got mostly photos – and only oe amusing video¬†oops that maybe he can edit.

FLORAL LIFE
I’ve been playing with the clip-on macro lens for my iPhone. Only one I like so far.

Practice makes perfect on all of the above…more to come.
