Up to two weeks ago, I have never seen a hummingbird in real life. Since that time, I have spotted them twice, and each time, they have left me standing on the pavement in awe.
I have marveled over those incredible creatures in books, magazines and even video, but for 47 years, they eluded me.
I belong to a Nikon camera enthusiasts group and often see the most amazing photographs of various hummingbirds.
I find that they have the most beautiful colors and I can't help but marvel over their flight abilities.
