These pix are from the net. I will post Josh's pix of them feeding on my petunias as soon he or I figure out how to send them from his phone.
While Josh was over earlier today, we were watching the antics of the 2 hummingbirds fighting again over the rights of the feeder. One would take a drink but then be impaled by the beak of her rival. Suddenly Josh said that there was a third one, a much smaller kind, on my petunia basket flitting from flower to flower. It let Josh stand right over it as he took pix with a camera phone (will get these at some point). Now the hummingbirds will get close to you if they feel like it but they won't let you approach them..too close for their comfort. I thought it was a very large bee but it was clearly sipping the nectar with its bill like thing. Also in Michigan, we just have the ruby throated hummingbird which my girls are (though being girls, no ruby throat). The wings moved too fast to tell what they were and it was not green.. I never saw a hummingbird moth (though that thing on the beach last Wedensday probably was) before.
We then watched Girl with a Dragon Tattoo which I am to get the book soon from Julia. Someone had left a copy of the next book on the airport seat. I waited for an hour for it to be claimed..but now its mine..all mine.
