I've been lucky enough to spot, and try to take pictures of, some of the hummingbirds that are so abundant down here in Arizona. I keep hoping I'll get lucky and get a really good picture of one. It would be easier if we had a hummingbird feeder in the yard, but I'd hate for the little creatures to become used to being fed here and then to be sad when we're away for such long stretches at a time.
In the meantime, my friend Mickey sent me this amazing video of people hand-feeding some wild Alaskan Hummingbirds far away from Arizona, up in Alaska. I hope you love it as much as I do.
