A portrait with a story...




Yes that's me. Can you see how close that hummingbird was to my head? I was just coming back from my walk. I noticed that the hummingbird was at the feeder. When he wasn't looking, I got a little closer. Suddenly, he flew right to my head! The staccato beating of his wings sounded like a hovering helicopter. I froze. Was I wearing a red top, I thought? Is he going to land in my hair??? It was the strangest feeling. I stayed as still as a statue, till he flew away.

What an experience! I have a hummingbird garden in my front yard--but I have yet to actually see any hummingbirds. Maybe I'm looking for them at the wrong time of the day.

If I had been in tht situation, I would hv screamed in my most blood curling voice the second the bird came to my head!

That's wild! I'm glad you didn't panic. What would you have done if he landed in your hair?
