The Up and Down Bird
One afternoon last week I was reading on the couch and looked up to see this little hummingbird staring at me through the window. He was adorable and I watched him for quite a while. Then he flew straight up, then down again. I laughed out loud. Most hummingbirds in our garden fly from flower to flower and tree to tree horizontally. The next day it happened again! And a few days later. So yesterday I sat down to read with the camera by my side. I managed to get a bit of his performance on video. This is exactly my view from the couch.
I call him Mr. Up and Down. I think I’m in love.
