_MG_0120 Man on Fire

The cats have always been interested in the high speed antics or the hummingbirds that compete for the feeder.

I decided to add more feeders and watch the action on both sides of the lanai. First the wild side on the outside.

The "hummers" feathers are like lenses and a small change in angle turns them on and off. The red breasted male goes from dark to brilliant with a turn of the head.

I'm comfortable with a cold adult beverage - sitting in the lawn chair - with and without the "camo" while I develope the topic further.

Natures' jewels in your own backyard!
