I posted this on another forum but they are too busy being nasty to each other to appreciate the cuteness.

For the past few weeks now around here in southern new england we've been starting to see hummingbirds again and they are amazing elusive tiny birds with the ability to hover and the speed of their wings is incredible...

I always think i'm hearing the buzz of bumble bees whenever one of those birds arrive to feed from the sugar and water bird feeder dispensers we have set up and hanging around our back yard...

Are hummingbirds the smallest birds?

I wonder why they evolved the unique ways and sizes and abilities they did while so many other birds didnt?

Looks like the Bee Hummingbird is the worlds smallest known bird > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee_Hummingbird

Oh crap, if a buck snorts at you you better get out of where you're at quick. At least they give you a warning, not much though lol
Snort = you better get going in some other direction at a brisk pace.

they'll stomp their front hooves and snort

as he did , his new antlers had not come in yet , so
i was not that nervous , but cautious

the fawn still had her spots on her back , late birth this year
for the Doe .

it was one of those Kodak moments I seem to have here

every other day .

and the cameras are never with me or in the bag where it takes
too long to get them out .

It's startling to get in the car and as you turn to reach for the seat belt
theres a Deers face looking in at you

there is a lot of fog here this time of year

so you don't see them sneak up on you

they are looking for hand outs

Lot of Old people here
late seventies on up into late nineties

they feed every animal they see

Old woman tried to feed Beepers a Peanut Butter Candy bar
just yesterday morning .

I guess she thought ,,, it's food , why can't beepers eat it ?


so the Deer are really tame here

not like the wild .

Not very many tame wild animals around here because guess what happens to them when they stray into civilization? They're shot dead and their meat is auctioned.

Animals are not stupid. They're best off not depending on humans for survival unless they're domesticated like puppies. Sounds cruel to some I'm sure, I used to think it was very cruel when I was young. Wild animals should know humans will kill them and do best staying away from them.

More often than not many things in nature are hardly ever seen unless we're looking for them...

From tiny hummingbirds all the way to sasquatch...

Awwww. Notice how the hummingbird was so excited when taken outside and encountered flowers with nectar? Fabulous.
