Caption: Temperatures tonight will be flirting with the freezing mark. The recently arrived hummingbirds are really filling up this evening. It seems they know it's going to be a cold night and are preparing for noctivation.

Beautiful shot Gale. Will try to get to that article later. Gotta rush out a ways out of town so I can see the moon rise before dark. I'm too close to the East mountains here.
