We stayed in Estes park last night at a hotel situated on the main river that winds itself through the town. One of the workers showed Zoe and I a hummingbird's nest built into the lodge. We tried to photograph her on her nest. Unfortunately, we scared her. That's a picture of her quite agitated at us!
Imagine if we had to eat one half our weight?
Actually, it might be kind of fun!
We were able to capture her nesting. It's a bit fuzzy, but you can see how tiny the nest is
ur adventure reminded me of when I was in my early twenties and renting my first home. Somehow, a hummingbird had flown into the house. She was pecking at the window trying to get out. I spoke really softly trying to assure her that she would be free soon. Of course, the window wouldn't open. But, this incredibly tiny creature let me scoop her up in my hands and I was able to free her.
A long ago memory resurrected as Zoe and I tried to capture the beauty of the hummingbird~
