wings’  wild

whir-ring

paused…

 

black  bead-eyes

scan scene

 

sharp proboscis

points

 

iridescent  avifauna

 

dips

deeply

of

honeyed nectar

 

and wishes for dinner companion.

    Lovely – you exactly capture that sweet hummingbird and it takes a sharp with and fast shutter speed to do so!

    That hummingbird is adorable, and he does look like he could use a friend.

    We have so many hummers here…can’t keep two feeders full. They are such a joy, as is your poem.
