A few minutes in the back yard

For them not interested in reading, you can go directly to the SmugMug Gallery HERE.  

For a SmugMug slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

In this case, either option gives you the same experience but one has larger photos.

Bird 1: “Whatcha doin’?”

Me: “Drinking coffee and snappin’ photos of flowers . . . “

Me: “. . . and bugs on flowers.”

Me: “Can you see the three bugs in this and in the last photo?”

Bird 2: “I can see them; two June Bugs and a bee.”

Bird 1: “I don’t have time to look for bugs. I’m on the lookout for other hummingbirds . . .”

Bird 1: “. . . while I take a few sips of this here pseudo-nectar.”

Bird 3: “Hi! Mind if I join you in a non-aggressive way?”

Bird 1: “I don’t mind. It’s a welcome change from the usual attacks.”

Bird 1: “That way, we can both look out for aggressive hummingbirds.”

Bird 3: “Don’t worry; if any show up, I go behind the feeder and then I appear very large and they leave me alone.”

Bird 1: “That’s stupid; it only works if they are on the other side and then they’ll look just as large.”

Bird 3: “Are you calling me stupid?”
Bird 1: “I’m saying the idea is stupid. Besides, they can just fly around to your side.”

Bird 3: “It sounds like you’re calling me stupid. You can forget all about that non-aggressive stuff now; I flare my tail toward you!”

Bird 1: “Oh, for FSM’s sake! I’m outta here.”

Bird 3: “Let me look for other hummingbirds before I take a few sips of this here pseudo-nectar . . .”

Here’s the gallery of the above:

    I don’t have the mental fortitude to look for those hidden insects this morning . . . perhaps later. But I did give my attention to your hummingbird conversation and was entertained. Glad you put that conversation last so I didn’t end this segment of time with unfinished business.

    Very amusing conversation. You must have a hidden microphone on that pseudo-nectar thingamy.

      I read hummingbird lips.

      . . . they do too, have lips! Very long and very thin lips. Revlon would go out of business marketing to hummingbirds. One tube would last them a long, long, long time.

      . . . however, they don’t have pockets so it might still be a lucrative business opportunity.

    We have only one hummingbird resident… the bird is very territorial and aggressive.

      We have a few more . . .

      You’re probably not seeing the same one all the time because they chase each other away, a new one stays for a bit, and then relinquishes guarding duty to a different bird.
