The hummingbird
Whose wings that fly
Are loud to be heard,
Rarely seen by eye!

So wild and free....
How quick are they;
When eyes don't see
Them fly away!!!

I shot this mid afternoon between our rain storm yesterday! They are speedy tiny birds and have always been fascinated by them.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    What a shot, you can just feel the motion and your verse expresses that so well. The other day a hummer zoomed past me and settled for only an instant on the sweet peas. I wasn't fast enough to get a shot but I will always remember the magic of the moment..
