Wordless Wednesday - my favorite day of the week!

It's Wordless Wednesday time again!  I'm looking so forward to Wordless Wednesday that it's actually Sunday afternoon that I'm writing this and I'm already preparing....but you won't see the until Wednesday.  I thought I would be proactive this week since I know it's going to be a crazy week and I don't want to miss the fun. 

If you haven't already linked up to join the fun already, hop on over and see Tanya at The Miller Racing Family and she will get you started.  It's really easy and lots of fun.  I hope everyone is having a great week so far and that you and yours are happy and healthy!  I can't wait to check out all of the great entries that have linked up for the day.

Here are some photos of a guest we had on our back porch this past weekend.  We thought it was kind of funny that he decided to perch on the flyswatter.  He was so beautiful.  We tried to get a shot of him with his wings up but couldn't.  They were such a pretty red color.  Don't worry.....we didn't kill him or injure him in any way.  Once the photo shoot was over, we encouraged him out into our yard.  Have a happy Wednesday!
