Hummingbird in St. Elmo, Colorado

We visited St. Elmo, Colorado this past weekend, which is a ghost town up past Mt. Princeton.  For a ghost town, though, there was certainly a lot of activity.   The general store is open and a lot of ATV traffic. It was nice, though, to see about 6 hummingbirds hanging around the outside of the store.  It was barely raining so I was concerned about getting my camera wet, but went for it anyways.   These little suckers don’t stay still for long, so getting a decent shot is not easy.  This one, though, I thought turned out really…

Bald Eagles – Broomfield, Colorado

We have a beautiful open space area behind our house in Broomfield. There are great trails, and a lake with plenty of wildlife. This past weekend (Jan 08) I took a run back there and had my camera with me. There was a pair of nesting Bald Eagles in a tree looking proud. I took several photos, and it was quite exciting. I have posted one here, and you can see the rest on my Flickr! page
