    ^^Hmm..^^

    ..the hummingbird must've seen you sitting there, with your camera, and freaked out; hence it refused to come close to the flower... ;)

    first post, please dont be too harsh. olympic related pictures that i thought were interesting. these are from a recent visit to Beijing:

    first: countdown timer across the street from Tian square. haha thought it would be smart to blur out the cop tag

    second: olympic slogan on mountain next to great wall

    Mike, you are now a hero after you walked on the Great Wall. Which section of the Great Wall did you go? Badaling? or Tianhaiguan?

    Good eyes folks. Yes it is Badaling. That picture was heading up mountain toward the east. The showers were off and on, but it got quite bad before trying the other direction (aka, the hands and knees section :D).
