Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)/>free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!

Caption: I'm so excited!! There used to be a pair that nested in my woods in the 90's but then disappeared, so seeing this brilliant fellow eying the Hummingbird feeder right outside my window was a thrill I can't begin to describe!! There's nothing blooming here yet so everyone's feeders are the only source of nectar at this point. I put out orange slices after he left but haven't seen him back yet.
