My life has a superb cast but I can't figure out the plot.

Hummingbirds



Right after I post this, I need to make a batch of nectar for the hummingbirds. We have cool, rainy weather moving in and there's a feeding frenzy at the feeder this morning! I take a lot of photos of our little hummer friends... it's challenging to get good ones, the way they zip around, but always really rewarding when I capture an especially good one! I took this one yesterday without a flash...


and these two today with a flash...



All three hummingbirds are Broadtails (we also have Rufous and Calliope hummingbirds).


And I found this cartoon yesterday... I'd get myself a pair of these earrings, but the way the hummers already zoom past my head at such high speeds and close quarters that they blow my hair around, I don't dare tempt them any closer! ;-)

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
