One of the nice benefits of living in the country is you just never know what "critter" may show up next. We've had four young raccoons foraging for berries in the a tree in our front yard, chipmunks at the bottom of the driveway, running around like bumper cars with their tails straight up! Just a riot to watch.
Our newest additions to the nature preserve, some hummingbirds! So far, two female and one male have been working our feeder. It's not like my granddad's in West Virginia where he'd have 40, 50 or more all waiting their turns to hit his feeders, but at least we've got a start.
The problem? I'd love to get a picture, but two challenges... they're REALLY fast, and I'd guess they have superb eyesight too and know I'm just the other side of the window waiting with the finger on the camera ready to click!
What I usually get when I try to get their picture is this:
See 'em there? Nope, me neither...in, out and gone so fast it would embarass a ninja!
The best I've been able to do is this:
Don't adjust your prescription eyeglasses, it is a bit blurry, and in more ways than just their wings!
And you'd swear it would be impossible for them to fly the way they
do...isn't there some scientific study that says bumblebees and
hummingbirds can't fly? But yet they do... there might be a lesson in
that for us too! Trust your God given gifts and make the most of your
Hope you're having a great week!
