|Acrobats...threading a needle...|
Try as I may, I am finding it difficult to get photographs of our hummingbirds that have come to the feeder we just put out; to this point they remain shy and cautious.
We love watching them flit and hover and suspend themselves perfectly still so they can thread their needle-like beak into feeder ports not much larger than the eye of a needle.
There are never more than two birds at a time peeping and chirping around the sweet nectar specially blended for their pleasure and health. Their wings rapidly flapping create more sound than seemingly possible for such miniature creatures.
