Photo larger than life size!
I am no hummingbird expert but I think this is a Costa's Hummingbird having a deep drink of nectar from a feeder at the Desert Museum. Visitors can walk inside a hummingbird exhibit and be inches away from many varieties of these beautiful little birds. It is magical! And click this link to hear hummingbird sounds. Fun!

Tucson Tradition - Winterhaven Festival of Lights
Winterhaven Festival of Lights. A Tucson neighborhood raises money for the Community Food Bank by putting on an amazing display of lights, imagination, and humor every year. You can walk through, drive through, or take a trolley or a hayride. It's really fun!

Santa's Southwest Spiderman, Stan ~
" 'Twas the the night before Christmas in 1805, when Tucson was in for an unhappy surprise.
The stockings were hung by the chimneys with care, in hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
But dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, Donner and Blitzen were not acclimated to our famous dry heat and had to change course to prevent sweaty feet.
So quick thinking St Nicholas had to draw up a plan, he met with the wilds, who told him of Stan.
They knew right away that he would light his skies path, and help to deliver to those sad from the pass.
The one and only Stanley West, the only arachnid that flies like the best, with web stronger than steel and feet grippy with feel, he'll bring Christmas back and do it with jest.
For centuries now he's a known trust ride each holiday time that St Nick is stateside.
So - you heard it here first: Stanley West is a Tucson folk hero! And check out his shiny red nose!

A Cup of Coffee Makes a World of Difference ~
Cafe Justo is a network of coffee growers providing sustainable wages and practicing environmentally sound growing practices. Fair Trade is not just a phrase for them - they really do it! If you love coffee as much as I do, try this coffee! Order it on their website and when you receive your coffee it will be labeled with who grew it and the date when it was roasted. Hard to get more personal and fresh than that! www.justcoffee.org

Tucson's "Shop with a Conscience" event ~
International Bazaar and only nonprofit organizations can participate. Shoppers get to help many worthy charities and find unique, hand crafted gift items. The church makes this a real festival with food and live music. This fun t-shirt was offered by the folks at Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter. There were so many great organizations staffing tables!
