I Wish I Could Do That!

You may have seen these pics already, but I saw them for the first time today when they were emailed to me. I didn't write the text or post below, but I wanted to share these with you since I think they are pretty amazing. I love hummingbirds and feed them all summer long. I get excited when there are 4 or 5 regulars feeding around our yard, but I've never gotten this close. What a blessing!

Here's the post...


HUMMINGBIRD LANE
This is something I have never seen before, or ever even heard of. This woman lives in a Hummingbird fly zone. As they migrated, about 20 of them were in her yard. She took the little red dish, filled it with sugar water and this is the result. The woman is Abagail Alfano of Pine, Louisiana - she has been studying them daily and one morning put the cup from the feeder, with water in it, in her hand; as they had gotten used to her standing by the feeder they came over to her hand. She says in touching they are as light as a feather. Abagail also said, 'if she had known her husband was taking pictures she would have put on makeup.'

Nope, not seen these before. Very cool. I couldn't even imagine them all in my hand like that.

One day I was in my office and saw my husband just standing there staring at me and not moving. Of course I thought he was being funny, I even thought the flower in his hat was cute. Then I realized he was standing under a feeder to see if the hummers would visit his flower in his hat. They did and he was quite proud of himself. He would be so embarrassed if he know I told all his secrets.
What an amazing picture!
