Just had to share - I was just out in my backyard and a hummingbird flew past me so close that I flinched! I remember when I was about ten our family was vacationing at a secluded lake at the end of a long, bumpy, horribly narrow, logging road in northern British Columbia - I saw a hummingbird's nest. I felt like the luckiest person in the whole wide world!
beautiful moment! I know the feeling, you just want to share with someone this delightful moment. thanks for sharing with us.
What is really beautiful is having this wonderful, new on-line Hub family to share touch stone moments with!
I frequently dine on the back deck near our hummingbird feeder. The male and female ruby-throated hummingbirds often visit the feeder early in the morning and in the evening. Thus, they're often flitting and hovering about as I work at my "feeder."
They're very comfortable as long as I sit quietly. They frequently alight on a metal plant hanger near the feeder. Often I can watch them fly to a nearby maple tree where they sit. Last evening I was lucky enough to see one stick out its long, tongue.
I like hummingbirds, but they aren't real common where I live. On the other hand I was sitting on our front step a few minutes ago and suddenly had a road runner flash across the yard about 3' in front of me, followed by a bunch of her chicks. They are feeding all around our yard the last week or so.
Apparently mama road runner came around the corner of the garage and saw me and took off like a rocket and the chicks simply followed her.

Have you ever had an "interaction" with a hummingbird? Did it acknowledge your presence?One day in the garden, a pesky pigeon was wanting to eat on our flowers. I got out the broom to chase it away. The pigeon flew to the roof next door to wait until I went inside, only to return after I...
