HUMMINGBIRD DON'T FLY AWAY, FLY AWAY
And the more musically knowledgeable of you may recognize that as part of a song by Seals & Crofts. But that's not what we're talking about(the song-that is). Actually, saw my first hummingbird today while cooking burgers on the grill. About 10 feet away is a Mexican Firecracker bush that has red flowers in bloom (this is Florida, after all) and the movement caught my eye. I'm guessing a female due to the lack of bright coloration, but still neat to see. And the wings move so fast, they really are invisible, just looks like a bird body hovering from flower to flower. Of course, by the time I got my camera it was gone, but at least I got to see it.
