The Hummingbird Experience

My most precious experience this summer, involved several experiences with hummingbirds.

It began earlier this 2020 summer in July. I “happened” to look out the sliding glass door and saw a hummingbird feeding on the sunflowers.

I grabbed my camera and started taking pics. All of a sudden, the hummingbird stopped feeding. It looked right at me as if to say, “Is that you, Ren?”

In the blink of an eye, it was at my window – dancing an excited greeting in the air.

Then it flew to a branch of the pine tree. How exciting!

Weeks later, in August, I “happened” to open the curtains to the same sliding glass door. Instantly, a hummingbird, who may have been at the sunflowers, zoomed to the window for a quick visit and off it flew.

Few weeks later, in September, I “happened” to be outside taking pictures of the Morning Glory blossoms. I heard a “chirt – chirt – chirt” behind me. I turned around and about two-feet from my face, was a hummingbird. Reflectively, I said, “Hi baby! Thanx for visiting me,” and off it flew.

I sure hope I did not offend it by calling it “baby”.

Injoy life in joy,
Ren
