I was in the desert for the last five days.
Some friends there have a couple of hummingbird feeders and I managed to get pictures of those amazing little things!
If you've ever seen hummingbirds in action, you know they just zip around at super fast speed. Hard to get a close look.
I saw five or six different ones, I think.
Look at how large their wingspan is. When you see them fly, their wings are going so fast they look like dragonfly wings. But they're pretty conventional once you see them sitting still.
Lookit his little claws.
I wonder if they ever sleep.
Aside: all of these hummingbird pictures made me think of my hummingbird toy. (I wrote that post six years ago!)
