Tiny Hyperactive Warriors With Wings
We've been watching two hummingbirds that come into the yard in the late afternoon – early evening during the past week. They move hyperactive fast! I've been wondering how in the world does anyone get a photo of these little guys?

When I think of hummingbirds, I think of tiny, delicate birds, and of all the beautiful photos and paintings of them with gorgeous flowers. Do we have that in our yard? No……. we have tiny hyperactive warriors with wings!
They are charging at each other, up and down, in and out, and chasing each other over a butterfly bush and a handful of bee balm…….. I guess they are so busy creating a ruckus that they've not noticed that there's an entire hillside of at least 10 more butterfly bushes!
Watching them, the art side of my brain starts to wander, ….. The juxtaposition of delicate, cute versus attacking, fierce hummingbirds is intriguing….. do their beaks act as swords, the green on the top of their heads as tiny helmet…. It could be an interesting fantasy art painting …… hmmmm…reaching for the sketch book.
Enjoy the rest of your day !
