Amazing "Disney" Moment
I was on the deck putting out sunflower seeds for the chipmunks when I heard a weird "thrumming" sound. I stopped and stood still. Buzzing in front of me was a gorgeous hummingbird. He was literally a couple of inches from my face. He just stared at me, his wings beating so fast I could barely see them. I almost held my breath. He came in closer, touched my hair with his beak, fell back a bit and just kept staring at me. He then flew down to the hummingbird feeder, around it, then back to me and looked at me while he hovered. I could actually feel a breeze from his wings beating. Then he took off.
Well. I felt like I was in a Disney movie. That hummingbird told me to put fresh food in his hummingbird feeder. And I darned well did. And he came back today, happy as a clam (I'm guessing he was, ha ha).
What a weird and wonderful experience.
