The text came with the photos.

A rare treat . . . an albino hummingbird! Here is something that is seldom seen and almost NEVER photographed.

Fifteen-year-old photographer Marlin Shank was fortunate enough to capture several images 
of a rare albino ruby-throated hummingbird while in a park in Staunton, VA.

Very high quality photographs for such a fleeting subject...

In flight!

Amazing photography when you consider that the bird's wings are constantly moving!

Humor --

I have a condition that prevents me from dieting.  It’s called “Being Hungry!”

It’s bad news when you get to the age where your back goes out more than you do.

I’m at an age where my secrets are safe with my friends.  They can’t remember them, either.

Then there is the fellow who insists he wears the pants in his family.  Maybe so, but his wife tells him which pair.

At my age rolling out of bed in the morning is easy.  Getting up off the floor is another story.

I need a six month vacation -- twice a year.

If you’re always looking over your shoulder, pretty soon you’ll bump into something.
