So, if you have ever been over to our place, you know that our backyard is kind of a wildlife sanctuary in the city. Between the 20 or so bird feeders, the butterfly friendly plantings and the koi pond, we tend to attract everything within miles. Today when our friends the Thurman8ers were over here for a Christmas present exchange, the boy came in and told us that he had managed to get a hummingbird to land on his hand. I of course grabbed my longest lens and headed out. After patiently waiting by the feeder for 15 minutes, he got a bird to land and enjoy a tasty meal.
Of course, as soon as he was done, his little sister wanted in in this deal too. She too showed great patience and was rewarded for her effort.
