The title I chose for this piece almost seems like an oxymoron because these little aerobatic daredevils and usually far from resting. More often they are running full speed ahead on some sort of Kamikaze mission
Fiercely territorial, I have witnessed them actually fight to the death guarding their little space of my backyard. If there was ever an argument for the "Little Bird Syndrome", the hummer would be crowned king.
Even with all that said, these little jewels of the sky are a favorite of many and just catching a glimpse of one streaking across my path makes me smile. If I am lucky enough perhaps this tiny package of personality will hover at eye level and check me out.
