Ode To the Hummingbird

Summer is almost over and I have yet to do my annual hummingbird post. 

Can't let that happen.

I've had the feeders up since early June, I believe. However, it's only been in recent days that my favorite of the hummingbirds have shown up to partake. They are orange Rufus and they always make me think of flying goldfish, so, I can't help but try to capture them mid-flight to illustrate that opinion.

The purple-throated hummingbirds are also pretty, but man, are they assholes. They chase the orange and green birds away from the feeders, regardless of the fact that I have six feeders in total, so there is more than enough to to around.

It's kind of ridiculous.

So, there you have it; my annual Ode To the Humble Hummingbird.

Jebus Cripes, I really am getting old.
