As you may have noticed, I have not publish any photos since September and I will not for a good while at least to continue. This is due to health reason and I hope you will understand. I also will not reply to any comment, like and personal message. I tend to spend less time on my computer, because I just can’t. I thank you all for your understanding of my pretty severe condition and perhaps we’ll meet again. Thank you and God bless.

This is the time of the year again and I was anxiously waiting for him to appear. I was not disappointed. I heard the chirp of the Hummingbird and i immediately started the nectar prep for him. Those pictures are the first of a series for this season. Enjoy,

The Andes or Andean Mountains (Spanish: Cordillera de los Andes) are the longest continental mountain range in the world, forming a continuous highland along the western edge of South America. This range is about 7,000 km (4,300 mi) long, about 200 to 700 km (120 to 430 mi) wide (widest between 18° south and 20° south latitude), and of an average height of about 4,000 m (13,000 ft). The Andes extend from north to south through seven South American countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
