owl

TWINKY!

We have a hummingbird! Or two!

They look a lot like this - and I am utterly enchanted.

The cats think it's a weird kind of bug, especially since the male BUZZES when he hovers there, like a large bumblebee - and the two felines sit there with their heads lifted and raised and ack-ack-ack-ack at the intruder, not quite certain what they should do about the matter.

Tiny. Tiny, jewel-like and gorgeous. We have a HUMMINGBIRD!

(and yes, I named it Twinky. Why do you ask? [grin]
