Sweet Spot

The hummingbird has been coming to my feeder for the past few days. Perhaps it is the sugar water I added the the fermenting red brew. Such a beautiful creature, and such minute perfection! They are one of God’s special creations and a gift to all!

  1. I love hummingbirds! When I was new in teaching and full of angst about the abuse of power our superintendent and school board were exerting, I became president of our CTA (California Teachers Assoc.) – and earned the nickname of “The rabble-rousing hummingbird!”

    • Thank you Ivor! I was excited when I looked back at my shots. It was a lucky shot for sure!
      I had not heard this piece before! If more people listened to the hummingbird, perhaps there would be less bickering in the world!

  2. The photographs are astounding. The words are likable and a treat to read–about the “Built-in drinking straw” and “camouflage.” I didn’t see the bird at first with all the plants. The feeder, by the way, is also attractive.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. Interestingly, I had the feeder up all summer and it is only in the last week or two that I have seen them come. Then on Saturday I added some more sugar water to the mix and they can’t seems to get enough!
