The Hummingbirds are gone for the season, off migrating to wherever they migrate too.  This little lady was the last to go; she hung out and kept me entertained until late September, then poof!  She's gone.  I'm hoping next year my feeder becomes a little more popular as the word is spread that I have the best nectar in the neighborhood, with no pesticides, no GMOs, no artificial sweeteners and only pure organic cane sugar.  Think they care?  Nah, neither do I.

I do have one or two others that I'll post in the next month or so, but that'll be all until they return next spring.  I've also got another bison image that I'll be posting soon.

Still having a beautiful autumn here in Denver, but the trees are starting to thin and the end is near for them as well, and then it's the dark, dreary, cold days of winter.  Wind howling.  Snow piling up on our driveway (dammit!).  I think I suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).  I don't like winter. 

Enough self-pity.  Sorry about that!

I took this image with my trusty old D7000 coupled with my Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens at 300mm, which is the equivalent to 450mm.  I used Lightroom and Photoshop for post processing, added a few textures and tweeked the light and saturation just a bit.  The framing was a last minute thing - I slapped it on there just as a test and immediately felt it was a good move.

Another iPhoneography Friday will be coming up on, let's see...Friday!
