A (humming) bird in the hand ....

Our little hummingbird population seems to be exploding!  I'd like to think the young have left their nest and now are part of the feeding frenzy in my backyard.

Whatever the reason, I'm very much enjoying their visits.  They are just so darn cute!

So cute, I thought I'd try an experiment.  I recruited my daughter, Alex (because she is young and much prettier than this ole girl) to pour some hummingbird juice into her hand and see if they would come to feed.

And guess what?

They did.

If you scroll to the end of these photos (which are SOOC straight out of the camera), I put together a video with some music.  Music which I'm sure will get ripped away once discovered!  But I hope for this limited time on my blog, it plays for you.  

I just had to include these photos ... something about them just makes me go .... awwwwwww ....

Okay, so here's the YouTube video!  It probably took them only a few minutes to come around and then another minute or two with indecision!

Sure hope you enjoy it as much as we did watching!  Look for the hummingbird on the left side of the screen.
