A Small Treat

"The secret to a happy life is continuous small treats."
--Iris Murdoch, from The Sea, The Sea

This is my small treat for today. Hubby bought a hummingbird feeder while I was away visiting my friend in Ohio last week. I LOVE it! He placed it right outside the window where I sketch. This little guy comes by every 15 minutes (give or take). Now I notice there are two birds that visit. But this one spends a lot of time getting fed. I really look forward to his (her?) visits. 

I took this shot through the window with my iPhone. Not bad, considering I was holding my breath because I was afraid any movement would scare him away. 

I'm still not getting much art done. At least not anything I want to show. It'll come. I am working on some things behind the scenes which I'll share soon. In the meantime, enjoy the little treat for today! 

Have a great week everyone!  :-)

Hi Pam!
That really is a treat! I love hummingbirds. We have one just outside of our kitchen window. The local hummingbirds are used to us now will stay on the feeder even if we walk by outside. One of them has had her nest right outside the window on a windchime for the past three years. We think that one or two of the babies still come to use the feeder.
They may be a small treat, but we love seeing them also...
