THE FLAGSHIP


The Hummingbird is definitely the commanding admiral of any place it perches.  For such a tiny bird, it packs a huge punch of hutspa, gusto, and confidence.  Hummingbirds are fierce when protecting its territory.  It wants all the nectar to itself.  When it comes to raising young, the males are "wham, bam, thank you mam". They take no part in rearing their young.  The mother does it all.  This hummingbird is a male Allen's which has established my back yard garden as his territory, but so have a few others.  The battles are daily and often.

I garden more than I clean house

I can go without food and water while gardening.  Time passes too quickly.  Night falls and I remember I'm hungry and thirsty. ...
