Scavenger Hunt Sunday & Your Sundays Best...

Hello my sweet friends.
I know I am posting this a little early, 
But that's OK right. 

I have missed the last 2 or has it been 3 weeks of 
Scavenger Hunt..  So I am so happy to be back playing.. 

The Words for the Hunt this week are.

Forest
morning Light
touch
newspaper
coffee or tea

So here we go...




FOREST
Here is a collage I made from our camping trip. 
I would say this qualifies as forest shots.




Morning Light
You know how much I love the rain..
I just love it when I wake up in the morning and
see raindrops on the window.



Touch
While I was in Portland this summer I caught a photo of these
gentlemen play chess..  My hubby was wondering why I would want to
take this shot..  Of course I said "you never know I might be able to use
it in a scavenger hunt photo someday"..




NEWSPAPER
Not just for reading..




I'll take a cafe mocha please....






Your Sundays Best
I had fun trying to catch these guys fighting over the feeder.
Humming birds are so territorial sometimes..  I am really surprised that
I even got this shot cause they were so far away.   I just love my Zoom Lens..



Well that's all I have for now.. 
I just want to say thanks so much for stopping by..

Hugs~

You did so well on your scavenger hunt! I really love the raindrops on the glass. The color is pretty there, too. I love how you got the hummer hovering over the shepherd's hook.

I'm laughing that your husband questioned your taking that photo....which I love - especially the B&W processing. As soon as I take a pic, my husband always asks "what's the prompt?"

Oh you know I am right there with you on the rain!!!! Did you get much yesterday? We got just enough to moisten everything & then it was gone. Did have a powerful clap of thunder though- so loud that it rattled the windows & I had to go out to see if we were possibly struck. That was exciting.

I sit here with my cup of coffee and think what a great way to start the day! Beautiful pictures! Hope you have an amazing Sunday! Hugs!
