In my back yard, I caught this critter at rest - I got to within about 5 feet from her. She kept looking at me and threatening to fly off. I was surprised at how still I could stand. PS It's a teeny tiny hummingbird.
Hey! How about a pair of socks? Cute, huh?
And for a trekking sort-of-still life (with turtle):
The Trekking yarn is so pretty! I've just turned the heel on the first one. This yarn is a pleasure to work with. I'm making a basic sock with a 72 stitch cast on and I'm using size 1 needles. The fabric is extremely dense. These'll be good. Or else.
