I love these little creatures! I held one in my hand once... (He'd knocked himself silly hitting my living room window) It was like holding air, only it sparkled in the sun. He finally came to and flew away... but what a moment!
because I love your handshake, meetin' my father, I love how you walk with your hands in your pockets, how you'd kiss me when I was in the middle of saying something, there's not a day I don't miss those rude interruptions.
Ray G. Foster Salem, Oregon Ducks, not hummingbirds, were on Foster's mind when he settled down behind a photo blind near a pond in southern Oregon. "I wasn't having any duck luck so I decided to focus on this hummingbird," says the paper mill worker. He used a 300mm lens to take this unusual photo of a rufous hummingbird collecting fibers from a cattail--presumably to build a nest.
