A macro pic of an Anna's hummingbird
This is my dog, Nalu. He is 3/4 blind but that never slows him down. I survey along remote streams in the Cascades for work, he always comes with me. Cliffs, log jams, bouldering, crazy obstacles that most dogs would never attempt. Nothing ever phases him. I'm beyond proud of his resiliance.
I just love how this Anna's hummer pic turned out
