Today I looked out the window and saw the stangest thing on the bucket of my wishing well in the front yard. I took my camera and started snapping pictures thinking, ok, this thing is going to come out of here and flog me.. but I got closer and closer. He just sat there looking at me. He was beautiful! I don't know what kind of bird he was though. Here are lots of pictures of this little unusual visitor.
I told Hunter to go and get a handful of birdseed, but he was NOT interested in what Hunter had to offer!
I was afraid he was going to bite Hunter's hand instead of taking the food, so we aborted that plan immediately! He jumped, more like flapped, over to the edge of the wishing well and just stayed there watching us all. He finally got up on the top bar where the bucket hangs from. He finally flew down when I tried to take more pictures of him. I guess he thought he'd had enough.
I also go to get some really good close ups of my hummingbirds. They flew within inches of my head! I was afraid one might use my ear as a feeding tube!! :)
This is my oldest... ain't he a handsome feller?
He is 17 and this much bigger than I am, but it doesn't take much since I'm only 5 feet tall!
These are some more of my adorable WILD CREATURES!!
I guess I'm makin' up for lost time on here today, hu?? :) Sorry for the long blog but this was a REALLY eventful day!!
I got my threading water punch in the mail today and so I think I'm going to go play with it and make some cards or something...
Have a good night!
