Dismal day and humming birds
I have to say today has been one for the books in terms of misery and aggravation...with this dumb tropical storm just hovering over us; in and out of our state's upper east coast!
Fay never did work up to hurricane force but seemed determined to cause as much annoyance as possible, nonetheless!
Heavy rains and moderate winds, for the past 2 days, have played a bit of havoc with us north Floridians! With all the rain, there have been reports of gators emerging from some of the waterways and invading populated areas. Thank goodness we are not near any lakes, etc...
We have had 2 dismal days of almost constant rain. Today, especially, has been nothing but gray skies and rain. The power has gone out a couple of times but just for short periods - so far!
I have tried to amuse myself with sitting by my window and watching the humming birds and I even tried to get some pictures- lol- with little success, tho! I think I might manage a half decent picture, from my vantage point here, if I remove the screen and clean the window!! Maybe I can do that after this tedious tropical storm has gone on her way!!
I am fascinated with these tiny birds! This is the first time we've had an abundance of them come around. Usually I see just a few each summer, even tho I have had the feeders for a few seasons! This year there are a bunch of them. (lol- maybe a flock) Every time I glance out the window I see a few of them flitting around and pausing to sip from the liquid feeder, placed under the overhang of the roof and very near my window! They don't seem very social birds, as usually only one will feed while the others just hover or chase the one feeding, away! They make me smile! :)
Anyway- here's a pic of the amazing little birds that are no bigger than a large moth! :) I would LOVE to hold one of those little things in my hand, just once!
All I can say about today's skies is..."It's a darn good thing I'm not depending on this for a SKY WATCH FRIDAY picture!"
