I just had to share this


See the little round gray blob about the center of the photo? That's a hummingbird nest, and it's about an inch in diameter. The hummingbirds love my back courtyard for the hibiscus, the birds of paradise, and of course, the pure sugar water I hang out for them. In the South, I grew up around plenty of hummingbirds every summer, but I never saw a nest until now. The mother built in one of my potted miniature palm trees, and I've been carefully spying on it regularly. First, there was a white egg the size of a Jelly Belly bean. Then:

13 days ago, just hatched

7 days ago

5 days ago

2 days ago

Any day now I'm going to go outside and find it empty.

I have had two nesting situations that I have monitored in my yard here in Leucadia. Photographed both situations daily. Each had two eggs. The second one required I gently pull the branch toward me to photograph. The little ones became familiar with me to the extent that, upon leaving the nest, they actually came back and fed on the sugar water feeder I was refreshing while I was holding the feeder. Unbelievable!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
