Hummingbirds. Are you as fascinated by their tiny bodies and silly aerial antics as I am?

For many years my parents kept multiple hummingbird feeders in their yards and we loved to watch from inside the house, or even head outside to see if we could get one of the little guys to alight on us. Alas, I never accomplished the latter, but I did get dive-bombed plenty of times. I remember one particular male hummer who had decided a specific feeder was his. And his alone. And while he visited it often throughout the day for nourishment, he also spent most of the rest of the day sitting on a special "look out" tree branch with attention focused directly on "his" feeder. Then, whenever another hummer dared to approach "his" feeder he'd swoop over and chase the interloper away, only to circle back to his private perch and resume his guard. His mama had definitely not taught him the concept of sharing!

My monthly desktop wallpaper background not only offers you a pretty seasonal picture to brighten your computer monitor, but also includes a handy monthly calendar and serves as a cheat sheet reference to websites you may want to know about and visit.  And it's even FREE to download and install, so please don't hesitate to share this page with your friends and family.
 
 
You'll probably want to consult your own computer operating system's installation instructions, but installing the background image on my Windows 10 system takes just 3 quick steps - and less than a minute. It's super-duper easy-peasy!
  1. I download and save the image to my computer - from the link just above that starts with "Click HERE". (NOT from the picture that appears at the top of this post!)  TIP:  To "download" the full-resolution image once it's open (from Google Drive where it's stored), I click on the downward-pointing arrow. THAT is what actually begins the download process to my computer.
  2. Once the file has been downloaded, named and saved to my computer's hard drive, I open it. 
  3. Then I right-click on the image and select "Set as" > "Set as Background"..... then right-click again and select "Set as" > "Set as Lock screen". And poof! That's all there is to it! (For convenience, I install this on both my desktop system as well as my laptop.)
And in case you may have an operating system OTHER than Windows 10, these tips may help with installation:
 
Finally, please keep in mind that the format of my monthly picture is designed for most modern-day 16:9 monitors (common format for monitors and HD TV's since about 2009), oriented in landscape format. (1920 x 1080 pixels.) If you're working with an older monitor (one that is more square-ish in format), or your monitor is set up in portrait format, the picture will probably not work for you. Sorry 'bout that.
